Apply for a British Passport 

There are various different types of British passports; a British citizen is entitled to a British citizen passport. 

A British passport application is not an “immigration” application, like an application for a visa; it is an administrative application. Other than in rare and exceptional cases, a British citizen is entitled to hold a British citizen passport, and if the applicant can prove that they are indeed a British citizen then they can, generally speaking, expect the application to be successful. 

Adults and children can apply to HM Passport Agency for a British passport. In most cases the application is made within the UK but in some cases it can be made outside the UK. It sometimes happens, for example, that a child has been born outside the UK and lives outside the UK but one or more parents is a British citizen and the child is also a British citizen and can thus apply for a passport. Such an application is called an application for an overseas British passport, but the passport that is issued is the same as that issued in the UK. 

A British citizen may also be able to apply for a passport renewal or replacement from outside the UK. 

We can also identify if children are automatically British following a detailed assessment and subsequently apply for their first British Passport, if eligible.

Requirements for British Passport Application

You will need to submit relevant documents to support your British passport application which can vary based on if you are born before or after 1st Jan 1983 and if you were born in or outside the UK.

Passport applications require qualifying referees or countersignatories. If the application is based on parentage (as with a child’s application) then appropriate evidence of this needs to be submitted with the application. The applicant may also need to prove where they were born. 

The application if made in the UK can be made either online or by post. The application process may involve an “identity interview” with HM Passport Agency, so that they can satisfy themselves that the applicant is who they say they are. An overseas British passport application, and especially if it is made by a child, is relatively complex, because there are more aspects to prove.

What we can do for you for a successful British Passport application

We can advise you about the requirements for referees / countersignatories. If the proposed person does not meet the requirements then the application is likely to be unsuccessful. We can also advise you about the other evidential requirements which, in some cases, are onerous. 

We will provide a Person Specific Document Checklist so that you can gather the required documents according to the requirements so that your British passport application is processed swiftly.

British Overseas Passport holders are encouraged to contact us and we will help you determine the rights you hold with British Overseas passport and options you have to settle in the UK.

We are able to explain and guide you on how to meet each of the specific requirements for the British passport application. We have helped many applicants who have had their British passport granted successfully the first time.

We will complete your application forms and advise you on how the application is submitted. We will also provide a Letter of Representation to accompany your application explaining your case to the Home Office and dealing with all the correspondence involved.

We will continue to make ourselves available during and after the submission of your application until a decision is made.

We will work hard to advise you so that you have the best chance of success.

    GSN team assisted me in applying spouse visa from outside uk.
    pleased with there service and level of support i received. had a successful result on the application. Initially, I enquired to most of the solicitors around Harrow-On-The-Hill station. Unlike others, GSN team listened to my situation and gave me confidence by clarifying and providing a clear legal advise.
    The proactive GSN team ensured to submit the application from the eyes of ukvi case worker which reduces the hurdles for immigration team, and increases turn-around time of the application decision. I strongly recommend to others, and support small and local business.

    Excellent and speedy service from Ms X Liang GSN immigration Ltd it was the best decision ever. I needed a spouse’s visa for my wife, which can be a lengthy process which takes a lot of time and effort. I am so happy that I decided to go with GSN Immigration Ltd, thanks to Ms X Liang’s attention to detail and in-deep scrutiny in checking the documentation provided, the process was very easy and straightforward. The communication was clear and we were helped to understand each stage of process. In the end, a swift decision was made in favour of my wife’s Spouse visa. I will certainly recommend and use their professional services again in the future.

    This outfit is first class - I would even say 'Gold Standard'. They are not cheap but are GREAT value for money because they CARE. Rahila is supported by a very bright and helpful guy 'Shah' who is ALWAYS available. Never do I find 'this is the O2 answering service' or 'your call is important to us'. There is ALWAYS someone of flesh and blood and HUMANITY at the other end of the line.

    Trying to do Visas ONLINE is like trying to get a job ONLINE. A route to madness. Give this team a chance. They'll tell it like it is. And they will get you there!
