The new online service for renewing a UK passport is pretty simple – until you get to the form above. If you’re filling in the form for yourself, there’s no guidance on what to do with the “Relationship of applicant to intended passport holder” section – should you leave it blank, or write in “self”, or something else?
Apparently, the answer is that either works:
@tomroyal @GOVUK I just left that bit blank and my passport arrived without problem.

@tomroyal @govuk yeah I didn’t get that either. I just wrote ‘self’ and it was fine

.. and I can confirm, as I did it myself: leaving this box blank works just fine.
