Apply for or renew a British passport if you're visiting the UK

It takes up to 3 weeks to get a passport if you apply online. It may take longer for a first adult passport.

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

If you apply while you’re in the UK, your passport can only be sent to a UK address - do not book any travel until you’ve got it.
