Default Renewing British passport - color photocopies of old passport?

Hi guys,

So I have completed the online process to renew both mine and my son's British passports (we live in the US, he is a US citizen and I am a US permanent resident).

I don't feel too comfortable with sending my current passport through - do you reckon it would be ok to do colour photocopies? The guidance seems a little conflicting from what I have read.

You have to send your old passport as they physically cancel it. They used to cut the corners off but now I think they punch holes through the machine readable part.

As Mr L said...you must send in your UK PP so it can be cancelled. For your son...colour copy of every page of his US PP and send it with the application.
