Apply for a British Passport using the NDRS service

You can apply for a British passport at the same time as submitting your documents through the nationality document return service. You can do this if:

  • you are applying online for citizenship
  • you are using the nationality document return service
  • your personal details match your identification and your citizenship passport application forms

Please note if your current details do not match your identity document you cannot apply for a passport at the same time. Any application made where details do not correspond may be refused a British passport.

If you wish to apply for a passport at the same time as citizenship for your family members, anyone over the age of 15 years and 6 months will need to attend the appointment in person.

If you intend to submit an application for a British Passport at the same time you must only use the paper applications, obtained from any post office, and book your appointment to include the passport application.


This easy, efficient service has been developed in partnership with the Home Office. If your citizenship application is successful and a ceremony is attended, your new passport will be dispatched to your home.
(Please do not contact Her Majesty's Passport Office (HMPO) or UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) about your passport until 20 working days after the date of your citizenship ceremony.)
