British passport processing moved from Singapore to Hong Kong British High Commission

Visa Bureau is not affiliated with the Australian Government but is an independent UK company. Australian visas are available from the Australian Government at a lower cost or for free when you apply directly. Our comprehensive visa and immigration services include immigration advice from registered migration agents, a 100% success rate, document checking and expedited visa processing.

The processing of British passport applications has been moved from Singapore to the British High Commission in Hong Kong as part of a global consolidation in processing locations.

UK Visa

British passport renewal applications must now be made to the British High Commission in Hong Kong.

 British nationals in Singapore, an estimated 25,000 Britons, wishing to renew their passport must now send their application to the British High Commission in Hong Kong via courier, a move which will take an extra four days.

A standard British passport with 32 pages currently costs HK$1,536 (S$275) and a Frequent Traveller's Passport with 48 pages costs HK$1,854. Both last 10 years.

The new measures came into effect 22 March and since the change the British Consulate-General in Hong Kong has received 82 applications.

The UK Visa Bureau is an independent consulting company specialising in  helping people lodging their applications for a UK visa and assisting in immigration to the UK.
