    From the 12th February the system has changed if you have to renew/or lose your passport while abroad.

    I've only checked 3 countries (Turkey, Bulgaria and Norway) for these you must apply to the UK (Liverpool) for a new passport see https://www.gov.uk/overseas-passports

    This could cause problems for travellers who lose their passports as they are quoting 4 weeks from receiving applications in Liverpool.

    One can still apply for a emergency travel document see http://www.fco.gov.uk/en/travel-and...s1/passports-a-to-z/e-topics/emergency-travel

    I would suggest that you check the procedure for any country you plan to visit before leaving home.

    Safe travelling.

    Don

    I just looked for France, for no other reason than 'you can' LOL

    156 Euros, inc €24 secure courier delivery. So the actual fee would be €132. That appears to equate to approx £114 ish.

    If you renew in UK £72.50 .......
