whats the best way to renew my uk passport
 
Hi, i need to renew my passport in January 2018 can you still use "the embassy" or would it be better to apply online or is there another way?

You have to apply on line all UK Passports are issued in the UK.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that it takes about three weeks. I renewed mine in March.
Also depending on your visa status if you wish to transfer your visa from the old to the new passport you must go to BI Intramuros. I know its a pain even for those of us in Central Luzon.

Apply online, print out payment receipt. Send passport and receipt via COURIER , new passport back in couple of weeks. you can do it now and get up to 6 months added to the new passport.
