1. For how long is a UK passport valid?
UK Passports are valid for 10 years. Please note that in order to get a visa on your passport, you must have a remaining validity of at least 6 months.

2. If I have lost my United Kingdom passport or had it stolen, will I encounter problems when I apply?
If you have a history of losing passports, this could pose a problem.

3. I tend to travel frequently and my passport runs out of pages quickly. What can I do?
If you are a frequent traveler, then you should request a 48-page passport instead of the regular 24-page passport.

4. I just changed my name; do I have to change the name on my United Kingdom passport?
You are not obligated to change the name on your passport if you changed your name. However, it is recommended that your passport be in the same name as your IDs or travel documents. Having your passport in one name and a document in another could lead to confusion and some problems.

5. What do I do if I lost my United Kingdom passport while I’m overseas?
The first thing you should do is contact local police and notify them of your lost passport. Then, you should contact the nearest UK Embassy or Consulate and arrange to have an emergency passport given to you. This passport is valid for one year. Once you return to Canada, you should replace your emergency passport with a regular one.
