[URGENT] Travelling to EU from the UK without passport

Post by n8net » Sat Jul 24, 2021 1:12 am

just wondering if your passport is stuck at an Embassy processing your visa and you want to travel to another EU country very very urgently, what can you do pls?

surely there must be a provision for this?

British passport?
I don't think there is any solution from inside the UK.
If you are outside the UK you may be issued with a British temporary travel document if you satisfy the conditions, such as being a British citizen.

Never heard of something similar available inside the UK.

I'm sure you can apply for another passport from HMPO (I know regular business travellers who do have two, mainly due to visa issues) - however, that can take anywhere from 10 days to 4 weeks (or even 10 weeks per HMPO website). Unlikely that will help with the urgency.

No experience personally but this is probably what you need.
