When applying for the first ever passport for your child (under the age of 12) you will also need:

On what occasions do I have to book an appointment and come to the Embassy to apply for documents?

  • Your old passport has expired (you need to get your fingerprints taken at the Embassy)
  • Your child has reached 12 years of age and therefore needs to give fingerprints for the passport
  • You wish that someone else picks up your passport / ID card on your behalf. A written consent can only be given at the Embassy

NB! Children under 12 years do not have to come to the embassy in person, one of the parents can submit the application on behalf of the child.

Your documents will then be sent to Embassy in London. Our Honorary Consuls can also issue passports.
ID cards can be collected from Honorary Consuls in Cheltenham, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Belfast, Jersey and Leeds.
