I’m a British citizen living abroad (I don’t believe this belongs on the expatriates stack exchange because my specific question could apply equally to British citizens in the UK - indeed it’s about a service only available within the UK), and wish to renew my passport.
In a few weeks I’ll be making (for unrelated reasons) a short trip to Liverpool, which happens to be one of the cities where the paper premium passport renewal service is available. The page says it can be used to:
renew a red adult passport that has expired or is about to expire
(Or when changing name, but that’s not relevant to me).
There doesn’t appear to be any definition of when a passport is considered “about to expire”.
At the time of my trip, my passport will have approximately 7 months remaining before it expires. Is this remaining validity period short enough to qualify as “about to expire”?
