Countersigning Passport Applications and Photographs

Unfortunately due to a high demand for countersigning passport applications you are now unable to use your registered GP as a counter signatory. Time spent completing forms like this takes away from the medical care of patients and most General Practitioners find that paperwork takes up an increasing amount of time from their already busy workload.  

For guidance as to who can counter sign your passport please call PassportAdvice line:
