BRITISH PASSPORT EMERGENCY TRAVEL DOCUMENTS REQUIREMENTS

Anyone can apply for an Emergency Travel Document if one needs to travel urgently while your application for a UK passport renewal is being processed but has not been received yet.

Your local British Embassy, High Commission or Consulate where you reside can issue an Emergency Travel Document. This document will allow you to travel abroad up to a maximum of 5 countries and will cover your return to the country you apply from, where you reside.

You will need to apply in person at the local British Embassy, High Commission or Consulate where you live. They will check to see if you are eligible to apply for an Emergency Travel Document. If it is approved, you may get the document the same day or a few days later in the event of more information being required.

If approved, your Emergency Travel Document will only be valid for the specific travelling plans you supply at the time of application.

The following will be needed:

  • Full details of your travel plans.
  • Two recent identical photos.
  • Your expired/valid UK passport or a copy.
  • Completed Emergency Travel Document Application Form – available from your local British Embassy, High Commission or Consulate.
  • A police report if passport is lost or stolen.

General/Original Supporting Documents

HER MAJESTY’s PASSPORT OFFICE only accepts original versions as supporting documents or replacement documents (birth, adoption, marriage, death, divorce decrees). NO photocopies or laminated documents will be accepted.

Documents that aren’t in English – including documents showing an address – must be fully translated by a professional translator.

Original will be returned after examination.

UK Passport application interviews became compulsory for first time adult applications. Interviews are done at a local Embassy, High Commission or Consulate in the country where the first-time adult applicant lives. Interviews are randomly chosen. Not all applicants will be called in for an interview.
