UK Passport Renewal

What you will need to submit:

  • Application form from the post office completed in BLACK INK only
  • Your passport
  • 2 passport photos (size and suitability examples in passport info pack). The slightest glint from glasses will result in your application being rejected
    • If your appearance has changed since your last passport photo was taken; your previous passport was valid for 5 years only; or your passport has been damaged, or expired 6 months ago or more, one of your passport photos must be countersigned in BLACK INK by a professionally qualified person who has known you for at least 2 years and holds either an Irish or British passport with a UK address; they must also complete section 10 of the application form. If both photos are countersigned, your application will be rejected.
  • A letter from you addressed to the passport office with your UK address on, authorising us to apply on your behalf:
    The EXACT wording must be as follows: “I, (your name), authorise (leave a blank space big enough for us to insert our agent’s name) to lodge and collect my application for a new passport on my behalf.”
