    Passport renewal question 10th Mar 18 at 7:02 PM
    Hi,
    My passport expires November this year, so I intend to apply on line before the increase for a new one. I won't need my passport until March 2019, can I choose a different start date or does it need to follow on from when my old one expires?

    Many Thanks

    Steve

    you cannot pick the start date, it will be valid for 10 years PLUS up to 9 months unused time from the existing passport so you won't lose out

    The start date will be November 2018. Your only other option is to let it expire and start from scratch at a later date. Given that you travel again just a few months later it isn't really worth the hassle.

    Not correct. The start date will be when it is issued. The end date will be November 2028.

    Thanks everyone, bit of a shame, be good if you could start it up to say 6 months after the expiry of the old one, but I guess I'll do it now
