    What you need to send
    You must send original documents, unless we ask for a photocopy. Your application will be delayed if you don’t send everything we need.

    Applicant’s documents
    Send the following:

    full birth (civil and hospital) or adoption certificate showing both the child’s and parents’ details
    the passport used to enter the country from which you are applying (if this applies)
    full colour copy (every page including blank pages) of any current or expired passports from other countries that haven’t been cancelled
    any court orders (for example that describe parental responsibility or residency arrangements)
    And 1 of the following from the last 12 months, that shows your name and address and/or residency:

    letter from your local council or a government department
    visa or residence permit (a colour photocopy will do)
    education record for example a school report

    The following documents are also accepted. The document must show a link to the parent applying, and that the child and parent are resident where they are applying from:

    parents’ identity cards
    hospital birth records
    mother’s antenatal records
    And 1 of the following that has your photo on it:

    non-British passport that hasn’t expired
    national identity card (a colour photocopy will do)
    any government or local government produced document
    If you’re caring for a child in the absence of anyone with parental responsibility or court involvement, send the following:

    evidence to prove your responsibility for the child – if you aren’t sure what documents you need contact the Passport Adviceline
    If you’re a social worker applying for a child under the care of social services, send the following:

    Parents’ documents
    Send either:

    full birth or adoption certificates for both parents (showing both the child’s and parents’ details)
    naturalisation or registration certificates for both parents
    If any of the following apply, you need to send additional documents:

    include a professional, or other title on your passport
    apply for a British National Overseas (BNO) passport
    apply for a passport under treaty rights
    change your gender on your passport
    get a first UK passport based on your parents’ Crown or Community service
    get a first UK passport if you were born abroad but adopted in the UK before 1 January 1983
    get a first UK passport if you were adopted abroad and you haven’t naturalized or registered
    get a first UK passport if you were born in the Philippines, or your parents are married or divorced and have links to the Philippines
