Thank you for your question.

You may apply for your new residency visa using your current passport which will expire on 2nd May 2012, no problem.

However, you should be aware that you will need to carry both your current passport and any new one when travelling to and from the UK. If you don't want to do this, you should renew your current passport before applying for the new visa.

Otherwise you will need to make an application and pay fees for transferring your visa from one passport to another.

Good luck and please remember to press accept.
