When to apply for a UK passport?

You can to apply for a UK citizenship in two cases. First of all, if you never had a passport before and secondly, if you have lost your passport. Of course, in both cases you only need to apply for a UK passport if you are planning on travelling and you have to make an application to the Identity and Passport Service (widely known as IPS). You can find the application form online.

First adult passport

In the first case, namely when you are applying for your first ticket, you should be very careful. This means that you have to make your UK passport application at least six weeks before your travel dates. Six weeks are needed because after completing and submitting your passport application form, you have to pass successfully through an interview process.

Yet, if someone when reaching the age of 16 already has a valid passport, then he or she can continue to use it until the passport is expired, and then apply for an adult passport renewal.

Child passport

If a person is under 16 years old and wants to apply for a UK passport, he or she should apply for a child passport, which lasts for five years. But if the child is expected to become 16 before the passport issuance, he or she should apply as though he or she is 16 years old and submit an adult fee along with your passport application to the Identity and Passport Service.
