Passport and Visa


If you wish to obtain a British passport, please gather all the materials in Step 1, and then follow shipping process in Step 2. If you need more information on how to obtain a British passport, please contact us anytime at: 1-866-334-8472.

Please read all the instructions below carefully. If you do not send the correct items your passport will be delayed.

The normal time to secure and obtain a British passport is five days, but recently it has occasionally taken longer, in some cases up to five weeks. In exceptional cases, we can request an issuance sooner, however there is no assurance the UK Embassy will renew a British passport it quicker. The Embassy makes every effort to meet travel departure dates.

We have not had a problem with securing UK passport renewals in a timely manner; however we cannot guarantee a date out of the UK Embassy.

After your British passport renewal, your Passport will be valid for ten years. Upon expiration, you will have to obtain a new passport.

If you would like for us to hand-carry your passport to the passport office, please send us the following:
