Services available by appointment
We may be able to provide an emergency travel document (ETD) if you can’t get a new or replacement passport in time to travel.
You can apply for an ETD if you’re a British national outside the UK and your passport has been lost, stolen, damaged, or expired. It doesn’t guarantee entry to every country; read what an ETD does and what you need to provide to get one. Please call us as soon as possible if: you are due to travel within the next 24 hours, or you have never held a British passport, or if you are applying on behalf of a child.
A limited range of services relating to official documents, certificates, and letters are available from this location.
We offer assistance following the death, hospitalisation, arrest, or other serious incident involving a British national.
We may be able to extend the validity of your current British passport in certain circumstances.
