Validity of passport and residence stamping

I would like you information on the below matter: My passport expires on 3/3/2019 and my residency expires on 28/8/2018. So is it necessary for me to renew my passport right now? I have heard that there is some rule that if the passport validity is less than a year you should renew it immediately.

Name withheld

Answer: We advise that you renew your passport before the expiry of your residency in order not to make things complicated for you taking into consideration the minimum one year passport validity requirement.
