Authorizing Another to Attend Your Appointment

Generally when renewing your passport via the 7 day Fast Track or 1 day Premium Service the applicant themselves must travel and attend a face to face meeting at one of the regional Passport Offices throughout the UK (not required for the standard 4-6 week renewal service).

Auth LetterThe Passport Office appreciates that for many applicants it can be very inconvenient to take the day off work and incur travel and accommodation expenses travelling to their nearest Passport Office so they can secure an express passport and so via an Authorization Letter the applicant can give permission for a family member / friend or colleague to attend the meeting on your behalf. You will need an Approved Authorization Letter >>>

Whilst you can create your own letter we can provide you with an Authorization Letter that has been approved by a solicitor allowing another to attend in your place. This letter is recognised at all 7 Passport Offices in the UK and can be provided the same day you request it from us. Request Approved Authorization Letter here >>>

Who Needs an Authorization Letter?

If the applicant is not attending the appointment them self then the person attending on for them will need an authorization letter to collect the new passport otherwise they will not release it. A recent study found that 1/3 of applications lodged directly with HM Passport Office are rejected due form errors, omissions or non-compliant photographs. Delaying the allocation of the passport.

Who Else Can Attend?

If the applicant cannot attend their own appointment then we can arrange an Authorized Agent to attend on the applicants behalf meaning they do not need to take the day off work, incur travel costs etc. Further details on this service which can be used for both Fast Track and Premium appointments can be found here >>
