How to obtain your first UK Passport - 3 simple steps

1Requirements to obtain an adult's first UK Passport

1. Fill original UK passport application form that you can get from the local post office (use BLACK ball point pen only with CAPITAL LETTERS and NO correction fluid)

  • Fill out sections 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 9 and 10. 
  • Note: for section 1 choose option 'First British passport'. For section 2 your address must be in the UK. For section 10, please see the guidance regarding this in our Pack - download box on the right. 

2. Two identical passport photos (examples of what this should look like is available in our Pack). One of the two photos should be countersigned on the back - see info in the Pack regarding this.

3. Original Birth Certificate that shows the father and mother's names.

  • Note: If the name on the birth certificate doesn't match the name you are putting down for the passport, please see the 'changed name' information box at the bottom of the page.

4. A letter on blank white paper from the parent/legal guardian of the child applicant addressed to the passport office, authorizing Gulfvisa Staff to apply on the child's behalf (you must use the template in our Pack for this).

5. If you already have a passport of another country (i.e. if you applying to have dual nationality) you must also submit this original passport.

Appointment System

The Passport Office have now implemented an appointment system (which we attend on your behalf). As soon as we have your complete papers we will apply for an appointment. The processing time quoted for all services is dependent on the next available appointment (i.e. begins from the appointment date) and cannot be guaranteed. We will do our best to get the early appointment and give you the best service.

The Passport Office have the right to charge full fees if the appointment be cancelled by you. These fees are non-refundable, and we cannot challenge passport office.

Changed name

If the name you are putting down on the child's passport form doesn't match what is written on their birth certificate you must provide: 

1) a letter from all those with parental responsibility confirming that the child's name has changed and that they agree to the child getting a new passport. This must be signed and dated.

2) a deed poll.

3) at least one piece of evidence where the new name has been used, for example NHS records or school records.

Refund policy

HMPO have now introduced a no refund policy if the applicant has not fully disclosed their previous passport history.
