British Passport Renewel Changes Again

I heard on the news yesterday that any British citizen who wishes to renew their passport will now have to present in person by appointment only, to the UK Visa Application Centre in Bangkok and they will send it to Liverpool for renewal.  Then you have to go back to Bkk to collect it.  Apparently this is to combat identity theft.

 

Looks like a bit of hassle for anyone living in the provinces.

I remember thinking just the same thing when I renewed my passport last year.  As in, I could have been anybody sending in the application as you do not need to send the original passport (unique for thailand) and nor are there essentially any checks that you are who you say you are, other than that passport or copy thereof.  

 

Inconvenient for sure, but should not come as a surprise.
