You guys psyched enough for a motherfucking passport thread?
Anyway, I’ve booked in one of those 1-week fast-track services to renew my passport (won’t let me do same day because I’m a foreign), and as far as documentation I need to bring it says:
- A completed application form
- Two photographs
- The correct supporting documents
As you’ll note, one of these options is MASSIVELY FUCKING UNHELPFUL, that’s right, the last one.
Don’t worry though, because it also says
“Read the ‘Applying for a passport booklet’ that comes with the form to help you complete it correctly. It also tells you what documents you’ll need to bring.”
Now the THING IS, I’m not in the UK so can’t just pop along to the post office. Also, all my documents are here in The Netherlands, I’m in a catch 22 situation right now where I’m probably going to have to bring every bit of paperwork I have in order to cover the possibilities. This is shit. I’ve asked a UK ATD to get along to the post office and give me a heads up, but yeah, annoying.
Also, because this is my 4th passport in 10 years, it’s likely they’ll give me a 1-year expiry as they’ll suspect me of selling my passports on the black market. I have no idea how effective this measure is, but I will admit that my whole setup does seem pretty sketchy right now, which is annoying.
Anyway, this is mainly a #rant by me, but please feel free to chat passports in this thread.
