If you're aged 18 to 65, and you have applied for your first British passport you'll need to book an appointment for an interview at the

Before your interview you need to get a letter confirming you are registered at Income Tax and Social Security.
We'll send you a letter outlining the supporting documents you'll need to bring to the interview.
What happens at the interview
Your interview will take about 30 minutes.
You'll be asked confirm facts about yourself to make sure you are who you claim to be.
Documents to take with you to the interview
You need original documents. Photocopies are not accepted.
You should bring:
- your application form
- letters from Income Tax and Social Security
- documentary evidence to help verify your identity (at least one document that has your photograph)
The documents you're asked to provide will depend on where and when you were born. To check which documents you'll need to provide read the passport application guidance notes.
Currently a small percentage of British Islanders, who have no links to the UK, have an Islander Endorsement stamp in their passports. This endorsement restricts the automatic right to live and work in the EU. After 31 December 2020 this endorsement will cease to be added to any new or renewed Jersey variant British passports.
