The British passport application can take up to 10 weeks. However, if you need to travel for an emergency, such as a family member or friend’s serious illness, the process can be expedited. Adult passports are valid for 10 years. Different documents are required for those born in the UK and those born outside the UK to obtain a British passport.
Holders of the following nationalities can apply for a British passport:
British national (overseas)
British protected person
British overseas territories citizen
British overseas citizen
In addition to these, having British citizenship does not guarantee that you will receive a passport. If you have a warrant for your arrest for a serious crime, your right to travel is restricted by the European Union or the United Nations, and if you are on bail conditions, you cannot obtain a passport.
