DS-156 UK Passport place of issuance

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

There seems to be a lot of confusion about what to put on form DS-156 about passport place of issuance, being as uk passports do not state this and there are many offices around the country, me included lol

So i contacted the IPS by email asking what i would put when applying for a fiance visa as the place issuance and their reply was as follows:


Thank you for your enquiry.

You will need to write "IPS UK" where it asks for place of issuance.

I hope this answers your query.

Thank you

Customer service e-mail team


So where it says:

City of issuance you put IPS - UK

Country of Issuance Great Britain and Northern Ireland

State or Province Just leave blank

I hope this helps everyone who has, or had the same thoughts as many asking this very question just as i did!!
