Closed petition Extend criteria for fast-track passports to British children born overseas
Passport applications for people outside the UK, including children born overseas to British citizens, are not currently eligible to apply for the paid fast-track visa scheme, nor for fast-tracking on compassionate grounds.
This can leave families facing months stuck overseas, unable to return to UK, to jobs, or families.
Applications for British babies born whilst overseas should be eligible for fast-tracking, to allow them and their parents to quickly return home.
