The standard length of the application process with His Majesty's Passport Office is 3 weeks, assuming that your application is submitted correctly and without delay the first time around. A last-minute service is also available but is subject to your ability to book an appointment with the Passport Office.
If you would like to avoid the hassle, you can apply with Rapid British Passports and have it processed on the same day, the next day or in one week's time.
By using us as your acting agency, all you have to do is send us your application from your local post office or by courier.
As a specialised passport agency we are authorised to submit applications on our clients' behalf at His Majesty's Passport office without the need to book any appointments.
Your agent will check your items before applying for your passport in order to avoid delays and rejection.
Our agents are on-hand via email and phone to assist with any type of query you might have.
