European Passport Return Service

What is European Passport Return Service?

You and your family members can use the European Passport Return Service (EPRS) to have your passport(s) copied and certified if you are an EEA or Swiss national and have applied online for a document certifying permanent residence or a registration certificate.

This means that you can retain your passport(s) while your application is being considered by the Home Office.
