1. Premium (1 day) or Fast Track (1 week) service

You can get a passport using the 1 day Premium service or 1 week Fast Track service if you need one urgently and you’re in the UK.

You can’t use either service if you’re outside the UK.

You’ll need to book an appointment at a Passport Customer Service Centre. You can look up the address of centres near you.

Use the normal service if your application isn’t urgent.

1 day Premium service

You can get your passport the same day if you provide a completed application form, 2 photos and all your supporting documents. You can usually collect it 4 hours after your appointment.

1 week Fast Track service

Your passport is sent to your home within 1 week of your appointment (excluding bank holidays) if you provide a completed application form, 2 photos and all your supporting documents.

Someone may need to be at home to sign for it.

If you’ve already applied for a passport

You may be able to upgrade an existing passport application in exceptional circumstances - call the Passport Adviceline to find out.

You don’t need to book an appointment online.
