1. Check that your and your family's passports are in date before you book a holiday.
2. Apply at least 6 weeks before travelling. Use Passport Express if you are travelling in 3 weeks or more but make an appointment if you need a passport sooner. Remember, first-time applications take at least 4 weeks.
3. Over 18? Save time, renew online. No forms. No witnesses. No printed photos. It takes just 2 weeks plus postage.
