Hello again, I have another question to ask regarding 'Renewal of my UK' Passport Can someone help please ...On the C1 Form, section 9 it states in 'Bold, Block Capitals' - 'This section must be completed by the Countersignatory' but on the 'Webiste' - http://ukinuae.fco.gov.uk/en/help-for-british-nationals/passports/ The section 'Steps to Renew Your Adult Passport (for applicants over 16)' scroll down a little is clearly states the following: 'Countersignature of the form and photographs is not necessary for those people over 16 renewing a passport, unless your appearance has changed significantly since your previous passport was issued'. My appearance has not changed that much (few more wrinkles!!), so this means to me, I will not need to get anything 'Countersigned'... But, on the C1 Form its says very clearly you need to get it Coutersigned as well as your photos and on the website says differnt....Has anyone renewed their Passport lately and could advise what I should do, before I call them? I am very confused and obviously want to send all the correct paperwork!Many thanks.
I just renewed my daughter's passport and recieved it last week. Go on the UK in UAE website, click on "passports" and click on "Regional Passport Processing Centre in Dusseldorf, Germany" which is highlighted in blue. We needed the child form, just read all the guideline notes to see which form you need to download. We were not able to fill out the form online so printed it then filled it out (I only had a B&W printer and was worried about this, but it wasn't a problem). Also print the guideline notes and follow the notes.They recommend you use DHL to send your form to Dusseldorf, which is what we did and it took just under 3 weeks to get the new passport and the old one back, though some people don't recieve them on the same day as the new one comes from the UK and all the paperwork and old passport are returned form Germany.HTH. Good luck
I understand to renew your UK Passport, you now have to post it to Germany with the relevant completed form. Has anyone done this? If so can you advise on the website you used and which 'form' was required. Is it a Smart Form? Can anyone 'simplify' what is required in order to renew? As I am getting a little confused... Thanks
