Default renew british passport for child

Sorry another question regarding passports did a search.

My daughter needs her UK passport renewed by the end of November. On the countersignature part, can a qualified Nurse sign?

Thanks

Amanda

Didn't read any of them threads then?

Yes, a nurse can sign, anyone of standing can sign.

If your daughter is recognisable from her old passport, she wouldn't even need it counter signed.

The occupation of your countersignatory will not determine whether or not your application will be successful. The issue of a passport relies on an applicant satisfying a number of criteria. Therefore, the list of occupations below is purely for guidance and not an exhaustive list of occupations. However, you should try to get a countersignatory who is a person of good standing in your local community. If you are not sure who to ask, call the IPS Passport Adviceline on 0300 222 0000.

Her last picture was when she was 3 months old, so I think I had better update it as she is now 5!

Thanks again

I was looking under the US British Passport renewal not the British side, no wonder I didn't come across this list.

What would people do without this wonderful forum?

Thanks

Is she a US citizen? If so, she might not even need a UK passport.
