I think it's down to the man of moment. I would have renewed it. They seem to be more fussy now. I wouldn't like to give a guarantee with the answer.

Re: UK passport renewal

I have just renewed my passport which took 2 weeks. I did it online and used one of the numerous photos needed for paperwork in Turkey scanned in. It was declined during the application but there is a box asking why you want this photo to be used. I just wrote taken by professional photographer. The new passport was printed using this photo so no problem.

Re: UK passport renewal

My application (online from Turkey) took about 3 months. Application made mıd July, requested documents received in UK end July, (sent via PTT, use "iadeli" post), approved early October, nice new blue passport received mid October courtesy DHL and Yurt İi.

Tried to take my own photo but gave up in the end and went to local shop for passport photo which I then scanned and sent no problem.

Re: UK passport renewal

Went to photographer's shop in Fethiye this morning. Got digital photo put onto my USB stick, and 4 pictures hard copy, which I didn't request/ want; 35TL the lot.

Uploaded photo to UK Passport site and accepted as "Good".

I realised at the end of the process that they had not asked for anyone to confirm my identity.

I presume that they just confirm that it is you by checking your new photo with the one from your old passport using the biometrics.

I would have thought that in most cases the old passport would not have a biometric photo.

Re: UK passport renewal

F. Y. I.

Although I live in Bulgaria, hopefully it will give you an idea of the turnaround.?? So I applied online on the UK Gov., Passport link, to renew my Old Passport.

Allowing for this COVID/19 Issue at present, I have just received my New Passport this morning by Secure Courier.

I sent my old Passport off from Bulgaria, via BG Special Post to the Liverpool Passport Office, on the 8th of October. And according to their website they received it in Liverpool on the 13th of October.

So, I think that's a pretty good turnaround for these troubled times..??

My old passport was biometric & that was 9 years old, so most if not all should now be biometric

I think in these troubled times the passport & driving licence renewal offices are far more efficient than usual
