European passport return service

The European passport return service is provided for EEA and Swiss nationals applying online using the EEA (QP) or EEA (PR) application forms.

As a participating local authority we can photocopy your EEA or Swiss passport and forward a copy, along with your checklist, accompanying original supporting documents and application form, to the Home Office on your behalf.  Your passport will then be available for you to use while your application is being processed.

This service is available strictly by appointment only and you must attend your appointment within five days of submitting your application online, in accordance with Home Office guidelines.
