A trip to the UK Passport Office to renew your passport while living abroad is perhaps one of the less enjoyable elements of life.
We’re excited to tell you that the application process is now entirely online, so the only journey you’ll need to make is to your desk to complete it.
Being able to speak with a consular official face to face allows you to ask questions and ensure that you are fully informed about the procedure and requirements. Although you won’t be able to get face-to-face advice from an official anymore, there’s still hope in filing a completely and correctly filled application, without any delays.
Even though the UK Passport Office no longer accepts in-person renewal applications, you are still able to renew your passport quickly and efficiently by completing and submitting your application online. There are, however, some aspects of the application process that you may need assistance with to successfully submit your application.
My BritishPassport offers a comprehensive service, advising and guiding UK passport renewal applicants living in the USA, Canada, and South Africa.
