Durham Passport Office

One of the seven Passport Office’s in the United Kingdom is situated in Durham and is open Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5.00pm and also Saturday from 9.00am until 3.00pm. The office provides both the Fast Track and Premium passport services.

Whilst typically a first British passport will take up to 8 weeks if it is for a child (0 to 15) then they can utilize the 7 day Fast Track service. HM Passport Office considers applicants who were included on their parents passport as “first time applicants” and so if you are over 15 and you have never had your own stand alone passport neither express service can be used.

Passport fee’s range from £53 to £193 depending on the service used. A list of passport fee’s can be found here. It is advisable that you do not make any travel arrangements until you receive your passport.
