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 have to go to a Passport Customer Service Centre. You can look up the address of centres near you before you book.

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 some circumstances - call the Passport Adviceline to find out.
