  • In a year when pleasant surprised are too rare, I had the good fortune to come across UK Abroad when all my attempts to get any reaction out of the British embassy in Tokyo on passport renewal had failed. Time was running out. UK Abroad's Australia office immediately took on my case and my new passport was in hand just over 3 weeks later! All through the service was exemplary and cheerful and I was kept right up to date throughout. From this experience, I don't hesitate to recommend UK Abroad to anyone looking for peace of mind during passport renewal.
