Is it possible to renew my UK passport at the Bangkok British Consulate?

Posted by LittleBethany on 15/7/2013 at 08:25

Can anyone help...I need to renew my UK passport and have heard/read it's possible to do at the British Consulate in Bangkok where it takes 10 days. Has anyone done this or knows someone who has? Any advice would be very grateful. I'm in China at the minute leaving in 4 weeks so can't send it via Hong Kong...Please help I'm so confused...=/ Thanks x

Sorry, but I'm almost certain all the passport renewals have to go through Hong Kong now and it takes 4 weeks to get your new passport back according to the official British Embassy website.

More info here.

Thank you SBE, I've sent it to Hong Kong and will have to get a tourist visa to extend my stay but your advice was welcomed.x
