The site https://www.passport.service.gov.uk/ is being blocked by AVAST. It is a legitimate government site.

Any idea appreciated in how to unblock.

Thank you

Click the "renew" button at the bottom of the page, then the "Renew Online" button take you to the blocked page mentioned in the original post.

I have used the submission form to submit the url as a false positive.
