Can You Get A UK Passport In 24 hours?
Yes you can get a passport in less than 24 hours, in fact once you attend an appointment at Newport Passport Office you will receive your new passport within 5 hours (please note that this depends on if your form and supporting documents, as well as your eligibility are all in order at the time of your appointment).
Appointments are often not available straight away
You will also need to consider that appointments for the one day passport service are only available 2-3 days in advance, so although this service is available, due to the fact that you need to pre-book this can in most cases result in a 2-4 day turn-around for your urgent passport, see more information on emergency passports.
