What is a second British Passport, and why does one need one?

A second British Passport is when one person holds two different British Passports at the same time, and they are allowed to use them both simultaneously as well. The passports will have different passport numbers, and are considered totally unique to each other, with no link.

The second passport service is unique because:

  • Most of the people do not know that having two British passports at the same time is even possible.
  • The process to apply for 2nd UK passport can be done with just the photocopy of the applicants existing passport, the original is not required.
  • This can be done on a same day service also with Rapid Passports.

Who can apply for 2nd UK Passport?

  • It allows someone to travel whilst applying for visas at embassies at the same time.
  • It allows people to travel to conflicting contries, most specifically someone with an Israeli entry stamp cannot enter places like Saudi Arabia, and other Muslim nations.
  • For applicants where their might require two passports, eg pilots, flight attendants, people that work on oil rigs, etc.
  • Applicants that do not live in the UK, and in case they need a back-up passport. Eg live in Dubai but its convenient to have a second passport in the UK.
  • For those who travel very frequently and their existing passport gets completed very quickly stamped and finished early, e.g: A British passport holder that is based in Singapore and travels around Asia, or Dubai and travels around the Middle East and Africa.
