European Passport Return Service

The European passport return service is provided by local authorities or nominated premium service centres.

Warwickshire County Council is a participating local authority and can photocopy your passport and forward a copy along with your checklist and application to the Home Office on your behalf. Your passport will then be available for you to use while your application is being processed.

Booking an Appointment

The service is available by appointment only at The Bloxam Rooms 5 Bloxam Place Rugby CV21 3DS Monday to Friday (except for bank holidays). Appointments will be available within 10 days of your online application. Please telephone 01926 412557 and leave your details. An advisor will call you to book an appointment.


You must attend within 7 working days of submitting your online form. The EPRS fee is £25 per application, payable at your appointment. We accept payment by credit or debit card. Children under fifteen years and six months old are charged £5 per application.


Don’t forget to use the EPRS service you must:

  • attend in person
  • bring your valid Passport with you and
  • bring your checklist with a PNN number on it and
  • bring all your documents as advised when you submitted your application on line with the Home Office

It is your responsibility to ensure you have all the documents required.

The Home Office may contact you for further information after your application has been submitted.

Using the European passport return service does not guarantee the success of the application and the local authority cannot provide any advice. This service will not ensure that your form has been correctly completed and correct supporting documents submitted.
