It is taking longer than usual to process applications because of coronavirus (COVID-19). Do not apply unless you’re travelling before September 2020 or you need a passport urgently for compassionate reasons.
There are different ways to renew or replace your passport if you’re outside the UK.
To renew an adult passport, use the standard renewal service.
To apply for a first adult passport, use the standard application process.
To renew a child passport, use the standard renewal service for child passports.
If your child has never had a passport, or has only been included on yours, use the standard service.
If you apply while you’re in the UK, your passport can only be delivered to a UK address - do not book any travel until you’ve got it.
Don’t include personal or financial information like your National Insurance number or credit card details.
