British passports are issued by the UK government's Identity and Passport Service (IPS). All adult applicants (aged 16 and over) applying for a passport for the first time must attend an interview with IPS in person to confirm their identity. IPS recommends you allow 6 weeks for your passport application to be processed. You should not make any travel arrangements until you receive your passport.
If you need to renew your passport urgently, IPS offers either a:
- fast-track one-week service
- premium one-day service
Both these services require an appointment at a Passport Office. In some cases IPS may need to take extra time to assess your application, including confirming details you have given and contacting your countersignature.
You should call IPS advice line to make an appointment on 0300 222 0000.
