British Passport Renewals If You Are Resident In Javea

British Passport Renewals If You Are Resident In Javea

Over the years we have seen many ways of renewing your passport, originally at the consulate in Alicante and then through the embassy in Madrid, but with the increased use of technology and the internet this has been changed so that all overseas passports are renewed in one office in Belfast.

Before you could download and print off the correct forms, fill them in and post them with the relevant documents to the overseas passport office.  Now however you fill in part of the application online, then you are sent further forms direct to your computer or an email address, which you  print, sign and post to the passport office with the old passport and photos. This is best done by registered post ( a cost of between 7/10 Euros for express registered mail).

It is not necessary to countersign photos unless you are requested to do so on the declaration form that is sent to you online. The fees for the renewal and the return by courier are paid online with a credit/debit card and will be taken from your account when you complete the online form. They say to allow up to 3-4 weeks for return of new passport, but often it takes only 2 weeks from the time of receiving the documents in Belfast.

If you do not have access to a computer you can use the passport check service at Total Postal near the Arenal.

The government website link is https://www.gov.uk/overseas-passports. Here you will find instructions and guidance notes, as well as the appropriate forms.
