You will also need 2 passport photos (see the passport agency guidelines). You do not need anyone to countersign the passport form or the photos.

There is an extra charge of £11 per passport application and a fee to the Passport Office of £72.50 per standard adult passport, £85.50 jumbo adult application, £46.00 per child application.
