The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Evening,

    Has anybody been through the day long Passport application recently? Is it a nause and where did you go?

    I have been trying to research but some say the Liverpool place has now closed then some other people say you can't do the day long renewal at all any more.

  3. Thanks Jarrod that seems to answer most of my questions, i did not realise there were 7 centres, of course none anywhere near ******* me.

    Decide where yourr going and book an appointment ... turn up with completed form and Passport photos , wait 4 hours then return and pay 129 quid !!!
  5. That simple? I would have thought dealing with Government types i would have to prove what i ate for the last 2 months and a spunk sample.
  6. These new passport things are quite good, my partner for some reason lost both our driving licences, pay online and a new photo one appears.

    The waiting time for your passport will be four hours from when the application is accepted and the cashier gives you a receipt.

    This service is not available for:
    •a first adult or first child passport

    Changing the name on your passport can usually be done using the Premium service. If you are unsure, call the Passport Adviceline on 0300 222 0000 and explain the changes you need.
  9. Ok Thank you Historyman, now another random question. My Passport does not run out for 2 more years but i don't hardly ever go back to the UK. Do you think its to early to renew, will they get a shitty on about it?

    Yep simple as .... just renewed my Passport last month and did the same day Premium service hence the cost and wait of 4 hours , even the form was simples !! You only need to get the new Photo signed if for some reason you look nothing like your last photo in your old passport .
  11. Why renew then?
