UK passport applications can be time-consuming, but you can avoid plenty of potential headaches by making sure any translation essentials are taken care of by a qualified team. Here’s the run-down on what you might need to know about applying for a British passport.
Who is eligible for a UK passport?
To be eligible for a UK passport, you must be a British citizen and have already acquired citizenship prior to beginning your passport application. You’ll also need to provide certain legal documents to support your application.
The documents required for UK passport applications are different depending on your personal circumstances. If you’re not sure about what documents you need for application, you can check on the UK government website.
Do I need to translate documents for my application?
If you need to submit original documents in a language other than English as part of your UK passport application, you’ll need a certified translation. The UK passport office requires all foreign-language documents to be submitted with an English translation attached.
According to the UK government, this translation should be provided by a translator registered with an official translation organisation. Working with a professional translation company ensures the translation is certified, which means it will be recognised by the UK passport office.
How can I find a certified translator?
