If you live too far from London, a more convenient way to renew your passport is through a consular outreach in your area.
Each announcement includes the schedule, venue, and link to the appointment request form.
Booking an appointment is a must for applicants in most consular missions, while some accept walk-in applicants.
Provide your own self-addressed envelope at the outreach site for mailing your new passport. You may pay for the postage stamps on-site.
