Renew your passport

Renew your adult or child passport

You can renew a passport if it's expired or will expire soon, this includes if you currently have a child passport.

You need to be 16 or over (or turning 16 in the next 3 weeks) if you want an adult passport. To renew a child passport they need to be 0 to 15 years old (child passports are valid for 5 years).

If you were born on or before 2 September 1929, you can get a free, standard passport. The express service fee still applies.

You must replace your passport if it's been lost, stolen or damaged rather than renew it.

You'll need two identical photos taken within the last month of yourself.

Getting someone to sign your passport photo

You will need to get one of your photos signed by someone else to prove your identity.

Applying from outside Jersey

You can apply for a passport in Jersey from the UK if you were born in Jersey.

You can't renew your passport in Jersey if you:

  • weren't born in Jersey and now live in the UK (you must apply through UK offices)
  • live abroad (you must make an overseas application on the GOV.UK website)

Jersey Island Variant blue passports

The new blue passport design is now being issued to British nationals renewing or applying for a passport, one of the major changes is that your new passport will need to be signed before you can use it.

How to sign your passport

Sign your new passport as soon as you get it. You can’t use it until you do.
Sign on the ‘holder’s signature’ line using black ballpoint pen.

When you don’t need to sign

You don’t need to sign your new passport if:

  • you’re aged 11 or under
  • you can’t sign because of a disability

The passport will show ‘the holder is not required to sign’ on the page with your name and photo on it.

Islander endorsement

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.
