Dear HM Passport Office,
One of our clients has been issued with British Passport in United Kingdom following his settlement and grant of naturalization. He has recently found that his Date of Birth was wrongly recorded in his Home Country. He has applied to then relevant court in Pakistan for the correction of his date of birth and the proceedings are continued in the court.
We would be grateful If you could explain the process of change of birth on the British Passport in United Kingdom?
We look forward to hearing from you.
