Passports and Citizenship

British passports are issued by the British Embassy in Washington D.C. Please use the links below for further information.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT WE CAN NO LONGER ACCEPT PASSPORT PHOTOS WHERE THE APPLICANT IS SMILING. PLEASE READ THE GUIDANCE ON ACCEPTABLE PHOTO STANDARDS CAREFULLY TO AVOID DELAYS IN PROCESSING YOUR APPLICATION. 

If you do not live in the UK you may apply for a passport from your nearest Embassy, Consulate or High Commission. Alternatively, you may also apply to the Identity and Passport Service (IPS) in person whilst visiting the UK..

In order to do this, you need to make an appointment with IPS in the UK and you must provide an address in the UK to which the passport may be posted.

Applicants will have to be available at this address to sign for the receipt of the passport. Please note that IPS do not accept applications by post or e-mail if you live abroad.
