Therefore, most people should only have one current (uncancelled) passp...

Re: Passport application – Section 3 (uncancelled passports)

I think you should include ALL passports that you hold that are current (not cancelled). I entered on a passport that has since long expired so I didn't include it. I only included my current one. The check and send guy said it was ok (I explained I no longer had the original passport that I entered...

Re: British Passport Interview - Preparation + Docs to take

VR - haha, the strongest thing I will have before hand is a cup of tea!

ban.s - thanks for the link!

Also, by the way, called the appointment line people and they confirmed that the only thing I need to bring to the interview is my letter with my reference number.

Thank you!
