Customer Question

Hi I hope you can help. I am a foster care support worker. One of my foster carers sent her 15 year old foster son on an exchange trip with his school to Japan this afternoon. She received a call from Sydney (we're from adelaide) this evening that immigration will not let him go to Japan as his passport is cancelled? A teacher has stsyed behind in Sydney with the child. The next flight to Japan is tomorrow night at 8.30pm. What we believe may have hapoened is this: the childs previous families sa social worker applied for a passport for him a while ago and then it was cancelled. His next worker later applied for another pasdport. She received the passport and gave it to the child. Somehow he was given the cancelled passport which was cancelled. We are not sure where to go and how to sort this out so this child and his teacher can get on the next flight to Japan. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
