No. A player only gets a single passport.
If a player is selected for the team above his centre, does this mean he is permanently a member of the new centre?
No. The NRP process is good for a single season only. All players interested in trying out for centres above their home category must go through the process every year.
Can a player attend a tryout for a AA or A centre outside of their own without obtaining a NRP?
No. The only way players can tryout in another centre is by obtaining the NRP from his home centre.

The maximum number of NRPs allowed per team is three (3).
What happens if a NRP quits a team after he has been selected?
Once a team has rostered an NRP no replacement NRP will be permitted if the player eventually quits the team. This would reduce the NRP number the team can to a maximum of 2 players.
