Applicants are now required to provide their old, or expired, passport if their new passport was issued on, or after, January 1, 2014. Applicants are advised to check if this requirement is in place at their consulate or embassy before submitting the visa application. Failure to do so may result in refusal of the application or a deferral.

This requirement is still new; some areas are yet to be defined. Crown will continue to monitor its progress and provide information on further developments.
