I have lost a passport that I had in the early 90s. I travelled to the US and China on it with my parents. Unfortunately I lost it sometime over the next decade as my next international travel was in 2007. SInce then I have had two passports and have travelled to different countries. I am currently in the process of having my Australian Permanent Residency/Immigration application processed. Can anyone advise whether not possesing that old passport will have an impact on the success or failure of my application?

This question came from our site for road warriors and seasoned travelers.

Possibly relevant: travel.stackexchange.com/questions/27014/keeping-old-passports French citizens would typically be unable to present any old passport. Many people would also simply have lost their passports. I don't know if it can be an issue but it can't be a deal breaker. –  Gala Jun 30 at 23:10
