Note: UK embassies, high commissions and consulates no longer issue passports. This is now done centrally by the Identity and Passport Service (IPS), an agency of the UK Home Office. Applications for renewal take at least four weeks from the form's arrival with the IPS by post, but may take longer if further information is necessary. The IPS advises UK nationals not to book travel until they have received their renewed passport.
