UK Passport Offices

This website provides information on all seven regional Passport Offices throughout the United Kingdom. There are just 7 authorized offices in the UK located in Belfast, Glasgow, Durham, Newport, London, Liverpool and Peterborough all operated by Her Majesty’s Passport Office all of which have the ability to issue standard, Fast Track and Premium British Passports. There are three ways to secure a Passport.

You can apply via the Standard Application Process which takes up to 6 weeks to receive your passport in the post, use the 7 Day Fast Track service or the 1 day Premium Service both of which require the applicant to attend a Passport Office appointment in person alternatively an Authorized Person can attend the booking on their behalf. You can apply for these services directly through the service, Post or Passport Office helpline or we as an unaccredited service assist you with the process through one of our packages (where by the passport fee will still be due to the Passport Office).

We are proud to claim no government funding or affiliation operating as an independent organisation from the government and Her Majesty’s Passport Office with no ability to issue passports and all fee’s paid to us not coming off the passport fee itself as we provide a range of optional value added services relating to British passports (see below comparison chart) not offered by HMPO even providing applicants with an optional Passport Office Exemption which saves the applicant time, travel and accommodation costs in attending their regional Passport Office in person. Need an Urgent Appointment? >>>


UK Passport Application & Renewal Process (3-6 weeks)

The most common way to apply for a UK passport is using the standard 3-6 week application and renewal process using the paper official 04 form or the free online service by the applying via the post where the applicant will receive their new passport 3-6 weeks later however we have a similar Online Passport Application & Renewal Form which includes a Check & Send service along with many other value added services that we provide as part of our unaccredited service. The fee that you pay us does not come off the passport fee due to the Passport Office. If you are travelling within the next 3 weeks then you should use the Fast Track 1 Week or Premium 1 Day express passport services. Need a Same or Next Day Urgent Appointment? >>>

Fast Track Renewal Service (7 Days)

You can reduce the passport renewal process by up to 5 weeks by using the Fast Track passport renewal service. However this service can only be used for British Citizens who have held a UK passport in the past and are day7renewing it or applying for a replacement due to loss, theft or damage. This service cannot be used by those who over 16yrs if they have not had a British passport in the past of their own or been included on a parents UK passport. If the applicant is over 16yrs of age and this is their first passport then only the Standard Application Service can be used. To take advantage of the Fast Track service the applicant will need to first book an appointment and then attend the Passport Office or have an Authorized Person attend the appointment at the regional Passport Office. You can book a Fast Track Appointment here >>>

Premium Service (1 Day)

With the Premium Service an applicant can renew their current passport or secure a replacement within 4hrs of lodging a passport at one of 7 Passport Offices, this service cannot be used for first time adult or child day1passports. The applicant will need to attend the regional office in person or send an Authorized Person to attend the meeting on their behalf. Whilst this is the most expensive way to renew a passport with a cost of £128 for an adult or £106.50 for a child it is the best service to use if you require an Emergency Passport. Whilst all seven Passport Offices offer this service it is important to state that you will need an appointment in order to secure a same day passport, you will not be able to turn up to the office without first securing a time and date for when you can lodge your documents. You can book a Premium Same Day Appointment here >>>
