Applying for UK passport

Recommended Posts

Hi I need to renew my passport ( and 3 kids passports!) from here in Australia. Does anyone know the likely waiting time and any hints or tips you could give me to reduce stress!!! Lol

The system has changed now and all UK passport applications go through the UK. Even lodging from Aus. Its a straighforward process we have found the wait times are usually pretty quick. We got ours back within a few weeks. Price is the same as if applying from the UK too, so bonus there. 


Just make sure you find a place that does the passport photos to the UK specifications. The standard Aus passport pics won't cut it. We used a proper photo shop (like the Kodak shop in Glenelg) and told them what passport were were applying for and they were able to change to suit the UK spec. It should be easy enough to find a place local to you to get them done.
