Get an emergency travel document

You can apply for an emergency travel document if you’re abroad and your passport has been lost or stolen, damaged or expired, and you can’t get a new or replacement passport in time to travel.

Apply online for an emergency travel document:

  • if the person needing the emergency travel document is under 16, a parent or guardian should apply on their behalf
  • if you are travelling in more than 3 weeks, check if you can get a new or replacement passport in time to travel

If you are not a British citizen or have not had a British passport before

Notarial and documentary services

With immediate affect we will no longer be offering notarial & document services. We have been working hard to provide a normal level of service to our customers but with the ever changing developments of COVID-19 we have to make adjustments to our services for the safety of both customers and staff.

If you think you have an urgent need for a document service, please contact +598 2622 3630.
