My husband’s passport was due to expire in March so he was aware that you cannot travel using your passport when it is due to expire. Next step, Internet. Some of you will be aware of this but some may not, you can take a photo of yourself for the new passport and it may be accepted or you may be asked to retake it. After a couple of attempts, his photo was accepted. The various questions answered, payment made and all was put into motion. A date was given for delivery and yes, within 10 days, the new passport was delivered and the old one too.
Gone are the days when you had to go and sit and wait in your local passport office , I think this service was wonderful.
