Is the Digital Check & Send renewal available in Welsh?

HM Passport Office will make digital passport applications available in Welsh in 2020. In the meantime, you can use the normal, paper process.

Can I cancel my Digital Check & Send renewal?

If you want to cancel your application before despatch of your old passport, we will be able to return the passport and refund the passport fee only. The application will already have been sent to HM Passport Office. You’ll be able to access it using the Post Office (POD) ID reference number on your receipt.

Once your old passport has been returned to HM Passport Office, you’ll need to contact them to withdraw it. Unfortunately, neither Post Office nor HMPO will be unable to offer a refund once your old passport has been dispatched.
