    @Chubmoks, if I remember correctly, the application form for citizenship does not mention that you cannot use an expired passport. However, imo, the intent therein is to provide valid documents as proof to whatever is required in the citizenship process. An expired passport might not be considered as a valid document. Better contact home affairs (131 880) to clarify.

    I called them already and the person I spoke with wasn't sure too:(
    I proceeded in filling up the form and won't allow me to proceed with an expired passport but that if you tick 'yes' to the question 'does the applicant have a current passport'. I did tick 'no' on that and instead tick 'yes' on the other question 'other travel passports and documents' which the expired passport is accepted.

    Hopefully no issues with it. I'd checked the Indian Forum and the cases they had there are mostly an expired passport right after they lodged their application and was ok.

    i also called131 881

    the lady said, if youre eligible for citizenship now and passport is about to expire, you can apply for citizenship before your passport expires, and if on the test date, your passport already expired, there's no issue, just bring the expired passport with you.

    lady also said the webpage never mentioned that you need a "valid" passport, so valid passport is not a requirement, however, if you need to travel outside australia and your passport has expired, that would be a different issue.
