Free Passport Status Tracking

If you have posted a paper passport application form, photographs and supporting documents to one of the seven Passport Offices either yourself or via the Post Office you can track the application using the unique 10 digit reference on the form that you used (see below) by calling the His Majesty’s Passport Office helpline.


If you applied for, renewed or replacement a UK passport via the official channel or with our third party assistance then you would have received a PEX tracking number which would have been sent to you via email.

Once you have located this number you can track the progress of your application here >
