Information from the Passport Office: For customers who are thinking about travel it’s important to be aware that renewing or applying for a passport in person at one of the Passport Offices is by appointment only. It is no longer possible to simply turn up and queue. To book an appointment, customers should call the Passport Adviceline, and they will only be charged their own local call rate.
