Uk passport renewal from Turkey

Has anyone had to renew their uk passport whilst living in Turkey? I need to renew my sons this year and am unsure how to do it. I looked on the Gov.net and it says to fill in the forms online and post to Liverpool! If this is the case what is the most reliable courier to send the old passport and how do I get the new passport back? Thanks for any info..

Re: Uk passport renewal

We have not done it recently, when we did ours (from TRNC) we had to send the passports to Spain, they have recently changed to to the UK. I would use a courier company that has offices both here and the UK, eg UPS or DHL (if there are offices near you. When you apply there is an additional cost for the courier back to you, so it will be sent back to you or to a British Consulate if there is one close to you. Good luck, it is a real hassle.

I used PTT recorded delivery to send my passport to the UK. New arrived within 4 weeks via MNG cargo. New and old passports in separate envelopes.

Re: Uk passport renewal

Ptt great service ,You track all the way to it arrives in the office in england on your computer ,I think the cost was 13 tl. 21 day's start to finish.

Don't forget you will need your Gate way pass word.

Re: Uk passport renewal

Got someone to bring a renewal form out to Turkey, I filled it in & my wife on a visit back to the UK took it with her & posted it. Came back to the UK address within 10 days & she brought it back out to me.

Re: Uk passport renewal

No need to mess with forms the online application is miles easier! I did it last year and it takes 5 minutes! They also have a helpline in case you want to check anything and they are very quick and efficient. I used PTT with tracking, it arrived to Passport Office in UK within 5 days. I received documents back after 2 weeks and the passport came the next day. No faffing and no hassle at all.
