** ALL ** Passport Queries take.two. **! Mod-note in post#1288

Mod-Note: I have just created this, our new Take.Two Passport thread. As stated in post#1288 it is for ease and convenience of our mobile users. Our original thread can be found here.

Thanks,

Additional photo ID - quietly going mad ...

Passport office (in London) not answering the phone, e-mail enquiry limited to 250 characters (WTF???) so hoping you good people can help.

DaughterNo.2 has just turned 18. Was previously named on my passport (and her mothers') until those were renewed several years ago, and due to a family break-up was issued with a UK passport in the meantime. She uses this for travel all the time, so can't be without it for a month or two while her application is processed.

Unfortunately, she has no other photo ID, other than a rail card that she also uses all the time and has a "social media" type photo on it, and a few DIY-style crappy laminated badges from previous volunteer work. She doesn't drive, none of her leisure activities require photo id cards, and she's on a gap year so has no student ID.

She can't be the only child-turned-adult with no other photo ID; how have others got around this problem?

CelticRambler, whats the problem ?
Do you mean shes applying for an irish passport and is submitting her UK passport as part of that ?
As far as I know the submitted passport is returned ASAP so she wouldnt be without it for long anyhow.

Are you sure she needs to actually submit the UK passport anyhow when applying for an irish passport?
If the parent was born in Ireland then it doesn't seem to be necessary for a child if born abroad and definitely wouldnt be necessary if they are born in Ireland .

@CelticRambler you need to make an appointment for the London passport office so that they can take a photocopy of her UK passport and hand the original back to you

Edit: or she needs to make the appointment, as the case may be

I’m pretty sure she’s be treated as a first time adult applicant, given that she’s only ever been listed on a parents passport, and never had a full Irish passport in her own name. Therefore she’d need to provide official ID to establish her identity
