PASSPORT QUESTION - Help needed.

16 replies
Found 22nd Mar 2009
My passport that was issued to me (in 96) when i was the tender age of 16 expired in 2001.

This year i intend to go abroad so obviously need a new one.
My appearance has obviously changed (by 13 years) as has my address etc.

Do i just fill the forms in asking for a new passport (with interview etc) and mention my old passport on the forms?

if anyone can offer advice i would appreciate it, the application pack is not clear whatsoever in what to do when your old passport has expired?

If you still have the old one Jason you will need to send it off with the application. They send it back to you, but it is clipped.

I think it's just classed as a renewal: ips.gov.uk/pas…asp

Could be wrong, but my passport has expired... and I think I have to apply for a new one, and provide my old passport number??

Yes you will need two pictures of your recent appearence. £72 (in either a cheque, postal order or credit card detail form), your old passport. and then you should get your new 10 year passport

I didnt enclose my sons passport when he renewed his last year as it had expired and passport office phoned me and asked me to send it .

I had an old one, i applied for my first adult passport, sent off my old passport and told them about it.

They sent back my passport and my old passport with a bit cut out.
