Passports - 3 Golden Rules


1. Make sure your passport and your family's passports are in date before you book any holidays.


2. Apply Early, at least six weeks before you are travelling - that way you will not be disappointed.


3. Use Passport Express if you are travelling in three weeks or more (15 working days). Otherwise make an appointment.
