Apply for British Passport


After naturalising as British, individuals can apply for their first British passport. This is strongly recommended, as it is the best way to evidence your new nationality.

You can apply for a British passport from inside or outside the UK, although applying from inside the UK is easier and much quicker, as priority processing options are available. Like most UKVI applications, it is completed online. There are various documents you must provide, all of which should be easy to secure if you have recently naturalised.

You will need to take a digital photo of yourself, which will be used as your photograph in your new passport.

Your application will need to be endorsed by a counter-signatory who must be a British or Irish citizen; be a professional person; not be related to you; not be living at your address; not be working for the Home Office. Your counter-signatory will need to log on to the online system, and confirm your identity, that they have known you for at least two years, and that the details given in your application are correct to the best of their knowledge.

The application will cost £75.50 if completed online.
