Changes to passport counter signing rules Posted on 17 Jan 2017

Dear Patients,

Recent changes to UK passport rules mean we will no longer be able to countersign your passports. Below is an extract from the 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.
