    I'll be applying for a new passport soon, and it'll be my first adult one, so I'll need an interview.

    Anyone know what sort of stuff they ask? How long it takes etc.

    Also, I want to point out that £70 is a joke. In Spain its only €20, Greece €26.40 and in Sweden 400kr (about £31)

    Crazy.:woo:

    According to the IPS an Israeli one is 220NIS, which, according to google, is about £34.

    Again, we're being ripped off. Although I picked Spain, Greece and Sweden as they're in the EU.

    The IPS?

    No idea, I just remember it was £17 when I last got one, 2 years ago.

    They asked me my date of birth; parents date of birth; how long I'd known my countersignatory, etc. asked me how I'd sent off my form, and to give my signature.

    It was all information I'd put down on the form. It didn't take too long, and the guy was friendly.

    Though I totally forgot my mum's year of birth, which was embarrassing.

    It's just to see you in person I think, they don't really seem to care about the answers anyway. Well I had mine last year and my social worker filled out my form (because it has to be done in some special way through them) so the person interviewing me was like Name/DOB etc, but was then some questions were like "was there an email address on the application?"....don't know. "if there was, what is it?".....no idea. "What phone number was given?"....no idea. “Where is the passport going to be delivered?”…..don’t know… “who is the passport going to be delivered to?” don’t know…I pretty much said no idea/don't know to pretty much every question I was asked, got the passport a few days later though and the interview was only about 10mins. Had to sign electronically too. If you filled out the form yourself it should be easy

    I was never interviewed for my first adult one which was just a few months ago. Just filled out the form then got it three days later.

    On the other hand, my countersignatory is a senior civil servant .
