    Hi Visa Geeza,

    Though I have asked the immd themselves, and they have mostly given me a good answer.

    I am curious to know what happens to the dependent visa chop once a permanent card is verified? You don’t have to renew it anymore and just leave it as it is?

        Okay. So, basically after we have a Permanent ID, that visa chop is useless?

        So, basically the visa chop becomes useless as the permanent card comes about?
