NEW: Overseas passport service information on GOV.UK

PASSPORTS NOW NEED TO BE SENT TO LIVERPOOL

The Foreign Office is publishing its overseas passport service information on GOV.UK, the new one stop portal for public services.

The FCO’s passport services overseas are listed under https://www.gov.uk/overseas-passports. How you apply for or renew a British passport when you’re overseas depends on which country you’re in.
GOV.UK allows you to search for country specific information using simple drop down menus to select the type of application you need to make.

Flippin' eck! I've just had a quick look at the link Suzyq. As well as taking around 4 weeks the cost of renewing a standard sized UK passport from overseas including a courier's fee is£147.86.

Re: NEW: Overseas passport service information on GOV.UK

I know what you mean and I think that the courier fee is just from the UK to Turkey so we will have to add £xx amount for the Turkey to UK to that cost.

I've just renewed both my wife's and my passport here in the UK. They were sent by recorded delivery at £1.85 each and took 8 days from posting to delivery of new.

Re: NEW: Overseas passport service information on GOV.UK

The fee for a childs passport is £101.36 which includes the cost of sending it to Turkey. Not included is the cost of sending to the UK and I don't know how much that will be.

Re: NEW: Overseas passport service information on GOV.UK

can anyone help?

I'm about to send off for a passport renewal but this bit has me stumped:

Table A
Identity, name and address evidence
All applicants must provide one of the following documents as evidence of name and address dated within
the last year, and one document showing photo identity (if a passport is not being submitted):
 National identity card or equivalent (or colour photocopy)
 Visa or residence permit (or colour photocopy)
 Tax record eg a letter from a tax authority
 Educational record eg school report
 Employment record eg official letter from your employer
 Letter sent to you from a central, regional or local government department


I can send a copy of my residence permit but it is not dated less than a year ago- is this ok to send?
