I'm not English, but your Embassy should be able to do it for you. I am going to my USA Consulate outreach program in Phuket tomorrow afternoon to submit a passport renewal application, along with 2 photos and 3,360 Baht. You should be able to email the English Embassy on Wireless Road, Bangkok or call them . Just Google them.

Good luck, Jimi

metisdead thanks for the link just checked it out, so maybe im best goin the uk embassy and just tellin them i lost my passport then they can do it there. wot u people think??

I do not recommend you tell them you "lost your passport", that would be a blatant lie. In order to go through the lost passport procedure, you need to go to a police station and make a statement that you lost your passport. Then you need to take the police statement to the UK Embassy.

Check out all the links in that link I sent you. Go to the Embassy and talk to them.

You might get away with saying your passport has been lost/stolen, but it's inadvisable. Going this route will probably require you to also submit a false report to the Thai police. Possible double whammy, as both sets of authorities will know when your passport was set to expire... And certainly not a good idea to suggest criminal intent on a public forum !

Fess up now, and pay whatever costs and minor fines you may incur.

good luck
