My sister is planning to come to the UK just for one day in order to renew her passport. Will she be able to use the 1 day Premium service?
Yes she can, provided she applies for it once she is in the UK. She can go one step ahead and Use the Online Premium (1 day) service. That is a new trial service and basic conditions are:
You’ll apply online with a digital photo and book an appointment to collect your new passport from a passport office.
You need to be 16 or older to use the service.
You can’t use the Online Premium service to get your first UK passport or to replace a lost, stolen or damaged passport.
Here is a wizard that she can use to check if she qualifies for this trial service: https://www.passport.service.gov.uk/urgent/online-premium
