Find out how you can apply for your First British Passport or Passport Renewal.
HM Passport Office is the sole issuer of UK passports and responsible for civil registration services through the General Register Office.
When can you apply for British Passport?
Once your British Citizenship or Naturalisation application is approved and you have participated in Citizenship Ceremony, you can apply for the British Passport.
You can apply for the passport online or by post, however online service is a little cheaper.
Also, due to current Coronavirus conditions Home Office and Identity & Passport Services (IPS) are taking longer to process paper applications and hence it is advisable to apply using online passport application service.
Can you get your new Passport Urgently?
You may be able to get a passport urgently to travel for compassionate reasons or work, or to prove your identity, however if this is your first passport, it may not be possible to receive it immediately as there may be a requirement to visit the Passport Office for a personal interview.
If you are renewing your passport you can use the priority service to get the passport on an urgent basis.
Passport Rules for Travel to Europe from 01 January 2021
You will need to apply for a new passport if your current passport will apply within 6 months from your expected date of return to the UK.
However, if you renewed your previous passport earlier than its expiry date, additional time may have been added to the expiry of your current passport. In such cases any extra months added to your passport may not be counted towards counting of these 6 months, so please be careful.
