First Passport Application - Online or Post Office?
« on: May 18, 2022, 06:07:39 AM »
There are several options for how to apply for a passport - online, and check and send (digital or paper) at the post office. Which one would you recommend for a first passport after naturalisation? There are cost differences but not enough to be a deciding factor for us. Prompt processing (as prompt as one can hope for in the current situation) and of course, safety/security of the supporting documents I submit and their safe return are.

TIA

I don't think it makes a difference but it's cheaper online (slightly).

Ensure to have tracked delivery and be prepared to wait up to three months for everything returned.
