Thank you for your enquiry.

Your husband's expired passport with ILR should be sufficient to make an NTL application. Please read through the guide line before making the application for confirmation.

Hi. Thank you for the reply. I did read the guidelines. NTL is for lost or expired passport. On the first page of the application form it is asking for a passport number. As his passport is expired do we still have to write his passport number?
Expert:  Frantz I replied 11 months ago.


NTL application is No Time Limit to transfer ILR from an expired passport. You will need to still write the passport number which contains the ILR.

Ah, ok. Thanks. I am really nervous about this application as it is our own fault that we let the passport expired and then new requirements from the Phil. embassy came in for a new passport application hence the delays and not able to wait for a new one. He is applying for a new job and they are requiring a BRP. Hopefully we will be successful in our application for NTL with his expired passport. Do you know any applications similar to our situation which have been successful?
