British Passport Child

All Passports to be checked on UK exit

A Child’s British Passport is required for travelling outside the UK and returning. British National Children must have their own passports for this purpose.

To apply for a UK passport, the child applicant must be under 16 and be a British Citizen/National or hold a British passport or be entitled to one.

Also, be aware that the child British passport is valid for five years, after which time it must be renewed. If you are applying for anyone aged 16 or over, they will need an adult passport.  Children’s passports do not automatically run out at 16, they carry over until they expire; for example, a child passport applied for a 15 year old will not expire until they are 20.

A responsible adult can apply for a British Passport child. But be aware that if the child is between the ages of 12 and 15, then their signature will also be required.

IAM can help you get this within 3-5 working days.
