    Renew passport

    Got to renew passport sometime this year but looking at UK Passport web site it says you can only pay for passport in Pounds. I have no UK bank accounts as they closed me down because of no UK address. So, anyone know how to pay?????????? Also no one in UK to pay for me.

    if paying through a Philippine bank or a card surely its the currency is changed at the point of sending so uk gets sterling ?, another suggestion is maybe a bank like BDO can send sterling for you ? or contact british embassy and ask how you can get round this
    the UK passport web site you read was it based on renewal from UK or related to brits living abroad?

    Don't know the answer, but interested to know how you get on , and how much it costs now... from the Phils.

    Won't be long before mine needs doing...though can probably get my son in UK to actually pay (in pounds).

    Do you have to send your passport off somewhere ? I don't like that idea.

    Never had to renew a passport abroad but the British embassy does not renew passports there?

    No, just carry your old expired passport with you.

    I have previously renewed my British passport at embassies in Cairo, Bangkok, and Luxembourg.

    It became a lot more complicated when they tightened up and centralised the process a few years ago

    For the last couple of renewals I waited till I was back in the UK and was able to visit the Liverpool passport office for the same day service, now costs about 180 quid.

    For my most recent application three months ago I applied online, completed the application form, uploaded my photo, and booked an appointment a couple of days in advance.

    I arrived in Liverpool early and as there was a bitterly cold wind I headed straight for the Lion tavern, a traditional British pub near the passport office, that serves an awesome pint of dark mild.

    Staff at the passport office were friendly and professional, there was nobody else waiting, my "interview" lasted five minutes, so back to the Lion tavern for another pint before catching my train back to Leeds.

    Sounds good...and I only wish it was so pleasant and efficient a task here in the Phils.

    One of the sacrifices us 'sunshine retirees' have to make of course.

    Both myself and my wife have very recently renewed our British Passports from Philippines.
    All done online. Posted to Liverpool via EMS. Old passports containing valid visa's were returned to us.
    The whole process went as expected and in good time...No problems at all.
    Sadly I cannot offer any proven solution on payment process....but this form appears to allow credit/debit card payments on internation basis:-
