Application Form

Overview

Your personal letter of authorisation entitles you to have someone else lodge your application documents with Her Majesty's Passport Office as well as pick your travel passport so you don't have to.

When applying with Rapid British Passports, your authorisation letter and all supporting documents for your application need to be sent together. To help you through this sometimes complicated process, we have created a simple template for you that you will have access to as soon as you fill out your order form.

Your Rapid British Passports' agent will provide photographic proof of identity at the passport office so that everything can be properly verified.
