Passport Woes

Posted on Wed, Aug 26, 2009 at 2:26 PM

So my husband's from England and immigrated. His passport expired about a year after he got here. Now we're planing to go back and see family in about half a year, so we're renewing. Mine? Downtown Halifax and a few weeks. His?

The UK will not renew passports for citizens living outside the country. Ottawa has some type of agreement, and the Canadian consulate will not renew it, even though he's a permanent resident. He has to pay 300 USD and send it to fucking WASHINGTON D.C., which isn't even in a Commonwealth country, to get it processed by the Americans.
