Dear HM Passport Office,

Why are British citizens, born in overseas British colonies, to British parents, required to prove the marital status of their parents in order to be granted a passport renewal?

How many people have been refused a passport renewal because they were unable to prove, to the satisfaction of the passport office, that their parents were married at the time of their birth.

Yours faithfully,

Carol Harper

Dear FOI,

Thank you for your reply asking for further clarification.

The period of my interest is from 2014 to present.

The reason I ask about proof of legitimacy is that my sister, born to the same parents, six years before my birth, has never been required to supply our parents marriage certificate, when renewing her passport but I was denied a passport renewal until I could prove my parents were married at the time of my birth. Is this legitimacy test applied to all passport renewals or just some? If it is not applied to all passport renewals, what criteria triggers the request?

I shall also put this question to HM Passport Office directly as you advise.

Yours sincerely,

C Harper
