In case of a lost passport while in the country, it is necessary to report the incident to the Jordanian police in order to obtain a case number. With this number, a letter will be issued by the police which can be taken to the British Embassy to apply for a temporary passport (UK passport renewal tracking) or a new one, depending on the situation. The temporary passport will enable the holder to leave the country. However if the individual resides in Jordan, a new passport (UK passport renewal) will have to be obtained and the old visa transferred to the new one. Likewise see the renew British passport online as well as the emergency passport UK.

For those who are planning to get married, a letter from the Embassy proving single status must be obtained, which can take several days. The original documents, such as a divorce decree or the death certificate of a previous spouse, must be provided. The authenticity of this letter will need to be verified by the Jordanian government, and then it will have to be translated and certified. See also the fiancé visa UK. Once these steps are completed, the marriage can be registered in Jordan using these documents.

Additionally see the UK Consulate Dubai and the TB test for UK visa in India as well.
