Madrid.—British nationals wanting to renew or obtain a British passport should avoid leaving their applications too late, the British Embassy in Madrid is warning.
You currently need to allow at least six weeks for a passport renewal and eight weeks for a first time application, according to Her Majesty’s Passport Office.
It is also important to get your application right first time, to avoid the paperwork being returned and causing further delay.
The Passport Office took over the processing of all applications from British nationals across the globe in March.
As part of the transition, the British Embassy in Madrid ceased to handle applications last year.
Overseas applications are now subject to further security checks, to align with the processes for domestic passport applications.
