Flying to Sweden tomorrow and just noticed my passport is out of date. Can I take it with me along with something like a drivers licence or birth certificate? If not I guess I'll try get an emergency passport today.
As you are not stranded abroad having lost or had your passport stolen then you can not get an emergency passport. However you can have a faster application. There is premium service (£128) which you can get a passport 4 hours from when the application is accepted or the fast track service (£103) which will deliver the passport to you within a week of the accepted application.
You will need to book an appointment at the passport application centre to get the application accepted. This can take up to 2 weeks. The location of the centres are in London, Liverpool, Peterborough, Glasgow and Newport, and Belfast and Durham.
You must bring a completed application form and supporting documents to your appointment. Get a passport application form and guide on how to fill it in from a Post Office.
