Her Majesty’s Passport Office complies with the Welsh Language Scheme, providing Welsh language passport application services in Wales, upon request.

The current passport includes Welsh language translations on page one of the passport and of the captions present on the biographical details page. Her Majesty’s Passport Office intends to continue providing a Welsh translation of these sections within the new design of the passport.

There are currently no plans to translate additional sections of the passport into Welsh.
