Hi Kiran - welcome to the forum. Based on information provided by other members who applied in December, the average time seem to be 3 - 4 days after the interview. There are exceptions of course (alis92005's interview was on Jan 14 but have not received the passport as of today).

Can you provide the timelines for your application (also applies to alis92005, rize007, luk1c or anyone else that applied recently)? This can help other forum users who just applied (me :)) or will be applying soon. The December data is slightly misleading due to the holidays.

Method of Application:

Date of Application:
Date of Application Received by IPS:
Date of Receipt of Interview Letter:
Date of Return of Documents:
Date of Passport Interview Appointment:
Date of Passport Receipt:

HI All, I've been approved for British citizen so going to my ceremony in march. I've got one question to ask, I filled out the British application form and it says you must write in the white boxes on the form. Has anyone written a bit out of it and still get approved.

My wife and I submitted our applications on Jan 18 through Check & Send, we each received today a txt message from HMPO stating that they have received each of our application for a passport.

I saw some timelines where they reported not getting an SMS but subsequently received the interview letter and ultimately their passports.

Has your documents been returned to you or your wife? You also previously mentioned your wife received an SMS, has she now received the interview letter?

Hi luk1c - give them a call to see if they can track your application, use the number below:

Adviceline No: 0300 222 0000

you will need to provide the application number to the operator
