Recommended Posts

I just wrote to the British Consulate BJ asking for an appointment to renew my British passport. Can people recently had the similiar experience enlighten me on how long do I need to wait for an appointment? and how long does the whole process take? I need to renew my Chinese work permit by the end of Jan. 


All advice appreciated!!!!!!! thx thx thx !

I can't answer your question I'm afraid, but I can confirm that sending documents (at least with Royal Mail/China Post) between UK and China is currently taking 2-4 weeks due to lack of flights, so if this is part of the process then I would factor that in.

Additional point.


Once you do the online application, wait a few working days for an email reply. Passport office may write to you saying you only need to send photocopies of your passport. That happened to a relative of mine living outside of U.K. in another country on a visa.
