Currently working on my tax return for last year and looking at buying a phone that can scan my passport. Jeez they are expensive! I don't have that sort of money and a perfectly serviceable one year old basic smart phone, all I need to run my business, which has suffered a 1/3 drop in turnover due to Covid... can you see the downwards spiral I find myself in?

Try installing a scanning app - it uses multiple shots from your smartphone camera and makes a pretty decent scan-a-like image. I've got "Photoscan".

I seem to recall my (Spanish) wife went to Citizens Advice who had access to a suitably-compliant smartphone - don't know if that's an option for you Hanneke.

Weean, it isn't in England.
However, I could do that if someone in Wales closed their eyes to my postcode. It is also.much closer and a friend volunteers there... I am going to see what I can organise.

Paul, interesting idea but it won't work as it needs hardware in the phone that can read the chip inside my passport. The camera can't do that. It can't scan QR codes either.

Got something to say?
