Can I get my passport today?

The current standard processing time is approximately 6-8 weeks after all relevant documentation is submitted.

Outside of genuine emergencies (death or illness of a family member, urgent business travel, or an adult with a lost or stolen passport who needs to travel urgently), we will not be able to expedite this process.

A temporary passport can be issued within one working week only in the case of a genuine emergency situation.

Valid proof of confirmed travel (e.g. airline ticket/email) as well as evidence of the reason for the emergency must be presented in order for any application to be processed sooner than the standard turnaround. You may incur an additional fee. Please contact us immediately if you require a passport urgently.
