British passport renewal (HMPO)

Postby Sometimewoodworker » Mon Jun 16, 2014 7:24 pm

If anyone is due to renew a passport it is going to take a minimum of 8 weeks. New passports much longer.

However if you haven't sent your passport in yet,
and your passport is expiring soon,
and you need to travel soon,
and you are a British Citizen or variant passport holder e.g. BPP, BNO, BNSS.

The FCO staff can issue a one time 12 month extension (foc) which will run from the date you get the stamp in your passport not adding 12 months to the expiry.

If any one needs more info you can PM or email.

Will Thai Immigration accept the 12 months extention? The reason I ask is the Australian Embassy and British Embassy are combining many facits of Foreign Affairs in the next few months. Which should be interesting to say the least.

Since AFIK nobody has got an extension stamp yet, it started today, there is no information about that.

If they accept ETD's then there is no reason not to accept the extension, but TIT and YMWV.
