I need to replace my passport as it's nearly expired... But now I seem to have lost it. It's the same price to replace a lost passport as to get a new one but if I try to replace my lost passport, will they replace it with a duplicate which has also nearly expired? Or will they replace it with a new one which will be valid for the next ten years? Basically, will I have to pay twice, does anyone know?
I'd really appreciate any information!
Also, does anyone know how long they take to be replaced if you don't fast track it?
