Who is the Passport Office?
All British Nationals are entitled to apply for a UK passport which are issued solely through the HM Passport Office. The office, established in 2006, is responsible for civil registration services, too, offering secure and accurate records of birth, death and marriages via the General Register Office.
The role of the Passport Office is to issue passports to eligible UK citizens on behalf of the Crown; to British nationals residing in the UK and, in association with their partners at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, to those residing overseas. The office issues over 5 million passports every year from 7 regional passport offices and 50 passport interview offices across the United Kingdom.
Application forms for passports can be completed online, printed and posted with the relevant documents such as birth certificates and photographs. Application forms are also available at post offices. Post Offices operate a check and send service where an extra fee may be paid for the post office staff to check the application to make sure that it is correct and send it recorded delivery to the passport office.
