Changes to passport counter signing rules
Posted on 17 Jan 2017
Recent changes to UK passport rules mean we will no longer be able to countersign your passports. Below is an extract from the gov.uk website.
People who aren’t accepted
Your countersignatory can’t:
- work for HM Passport Office
- be a doctor, unless they state that they know you well (eg good friend) and that they recognise you easily from your photo
You’ll be asked to find someone else if your countersignatory doesn’t meet the requirements.
