Okay, the gov.uk reads so cryptic to me at times. I may be a little ignorant, but I can't fathom what it's telling me to provide. Okay so here goes. It says I need to provide as follows...

You must send your birth or adoption certificate and either:

1: your mother’s or father’s UK birth certificate, Home Office certificate of registration/naturalisation, a British passport belonging to one of your parents that was valid when you were born or a British passport number for either parent

2: evidence of one of your parents’ immigration status in the UK at the time of your birth (eg a foreign passport belonging to one of your parents that was valid when you were born)


For a start, does that mean one type from each number? Do the commas mean "or". I'm really confused. If anyone could clear this up for me, I'd be really grateful. Thanks.

(FYI I'm applying for my first adult passport. I'm 25)

It's not well written. Logically it must mean either 1 or 2, since the immigration part is not relevant for most of us, and I think you can just send one item from 1. If there is an enquiry telephone number, or a contact email, I would check with them to make sure. Just pick the one item that you want to send and tell them "Have I got this right; I just send my birth certificate and [whatever the other one is]?" Unless somebody else on here knows for sure.

Thanks for the fast reply. I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this is poorly written. I have emailed them as well, but I'm asking for advise on all fronts.

Went to France, Spain and Malta when I was a young whipper-snapper, I was on my parents passport back then. They didn't do the smart thing, and get me my own passport at the time.

Wish they would have, so I wouldn't have this headache of dealing things now. I want to go to Norway!

Ah cheers for that.

I got the passport lark sorted. Turns out, I only need to provide my Birth Certificate, and my Parent's Passport Numbers.

Yeah, but yo'm one of them illegal immigrants ay ya! :wink:

I've just sent my renewal application off from Bulgaria back to Liverpool as with all these cut-backs due to successive governments concentrating on handing out taxpayers money to asylum seekers and other free-loaders, they've closed all of the European stations where I could previously have got it replaced.

So, sat here with a Bulgarian Digital Residence Permit and able to go nowhere outside of the borders of Bulgaria until when/if the new passport arrives back. :roll:

I remember the day, when a Blockbuster card meant something, that you were a man of substance.
