Use this service to apply for, renew, replace or update your passport and pay for it online.

This service is also available in Welsh (Cymraeg).

If your passport is burgundy or has ‘European Union’ on the cover, you can continue to use it until it expires.

How long it takes

It takes up to 3 weeks to renew or replace a passport online. It may take longer for a first adult passport.

You may be able to get a passport urgently to travel for compassionate reasons or work, or to prove your identity.

Do not book travel until you have a valid passport - your new passport will not have the same number as your old one.

Before you start
