The Horse Passport Agency was established in 2003 to provide passports for equines of no known breeding and it is responsible for over 220,000 horse passports making it the largest identity passport issuer in the UK. All equines in the UK are required to have a passport by law which identifies the animal, states whether or not it is intended for human consumption and shows the current owner.
Our passports are issued on chemically watermarked paper, include a hologram on the front page and are bound with a tough plastic cover fastened by two rivets.
This website allows owners to apply for a passport, record their ownership or carry out other updates to their passport either on line via Owner Services , or by requesting a paper application form. Applications submitted via Owner Services are normally 20% cheaper and processed faster (by up to 7 days).
