Second Passport
« on: July 10, 2016, 02:02:06 PM »
I have wanted a second passport for a while and so I checked out some of the agencies offering services.  Their costs appeared to be around GBP 350 including passport, services and VAT.  I then discovered that the Passport Office have a beta site for passport applications:-  https://passportapplication.service.gov.uk/ips-olc. I submitted my online application on June 18 but had to send photos and signed declaration by courier.  My photos were rejected and I had to send two more.  They obviously could not believe that I am an ugly old git.  Anyway, despite this delay I received my passport today, total cost GBP 110 for 48 pages.  So the system seems to work pretty well.

I think I did not get the URL quite right. Try  https://passportapplication.service.gov.uk/ips-olc/

Hi ukkorat.  I made my application from Saudi Arabia with no problems.  Was not aware of any country limitations.

Can still be done - so they say :)

The good news is Key Visa Thailand can take the hassle away for a service fee of only 5,000 Thai baht which includes document checking, photocopies, taking the application to Bangkok and collecting the new British passport when it is ready.
Even if you live away from Pattaya then we can still help, just send your documents to us via EMS and make the payment into our bank account. When your new passport is ready we will send it to you via EMS for just an additional 100 baht.

I just checked the web site and service is not possible from Thailand, Cambodia and Laos.  However, Malaysia is OK.  So maybe a hotel in Padang Besar could be used as a forwarding address.
