Eek! Can’t find your passport?

If you need to renew or replace a lost/stolen adult passport, it can take up to three weeks.

If you still have your old passport but you aren’t recognisable in the photo, or if you’re replacing a lost, stolen or damaged passport, you’ll need to get your application form and one of your photos signed by someone else to prove your identity.

If youneed a replacement passport urgently, you can use the one week fast-track service, or pay a little extra for the premium service to get a new passport within four hours.
