Passport Appointments in London

Passport Appointments at the Embassy in London

You may apply for the passport in person through a pre-arranged appointment.   On scheduling an appointment, a confirmation number will be generated.  Please note that you will not receive email confirmation of the appointment.  You must make a note of the date and time for your appointment. 

You should also take note of the appointment password.  You will require the password if you need to cancel the appointment. No record of your password is kept at the Embassy.   

Each applicant requiring a service at the Embassy must have a separate appointment.

When attending the Embassy in London for a consular service, only the applicant will be permitted to enter.  Exceptions will be made only if the applicant is under 18, disabled or requires a carer, and the accompanying person’s name is on the access list. The accompanying person does not require a separate appointment. 

Please note that applicants who do not appear at the appointed time will experience considerable delays or their appointment may be cancelled.
