    urgent (child) passport renwal 12th Jul 18 at 8:32 PM
    Hi


    I need to renew my child's passport urgently (travelling in 5 days) however checking the passport website it says you can renew an adult red passport within a day or two but a child's passport will be sent within one week of appointment date?


    Ill be phoning the passport office tomorrow but can someone confirm if its possible to get a child's renewed passport within a few days or not?


    Thanks

    looks like you can't get a same day / few days kid's passport - there are fair few stories online when there hasn't been enough time on child's passport and they have had trouble getting a very quick passport. There is mention that it is done for safeguarding reasons

    I understand if it was a first passport, but its a renewal, dont see why they cant do a 24 hour service like they do with an adult passport. its still actually valid for another 4 months but need 6 months to get a visa.

    They don't do it.

    Maybe you'll have luck with the Passport Office but I wouldn't be holding my breath.

    Try getting an appointment at an office that will do it by next day. We are in Beds but travelled to Peterborough (managed to get an appointment ) and paid for next day delivery. Like you, we had realised with only days to spare. We got the passport the day before we were due to go. It's worth a try.

    we recently done ours and it took 3 weeks as they need to write to the person signing the photos who had to sign a verification letter and send it back. The same person signed another persons child passport and had to do the same process.



    These were also just simple renewal's.
