To replace a damaged passport you must provide:
- 1 x damaged passport
- 1 x application form
- 2 x photographs
- Birth/Marriage/Naturalisation certificate (may be required in some cases)
The application form and 1 photograph must be countersigned in this instance by a professional person who has known the applicant for more than 2 years. They must hold a valid British or Irish passport and certify on the photograph that it is a true likeness of (applicant's full name).
Damaged passports may be retained by the Identity & Passport Service.
On collection we need to supply a letter signed by the applicant only authorising us to collect the passport when ready.
