You just need to send non expired (latest valid one) and just passport i.e. no BRP

it was better if you had asked it in new thread as this is just processing timelines

Good Luck

Hello,

Is there a specific topic for UK passport applications from abroad, or should those timelines go here too?

I'm waiting for an adult UK passport renewal from Germany (4th week out of 6-8), processed at Liverpool. Unfortunately Fast Track and Premium aren't available outside of the UK.

Also, how do we get the SMS and when?

Guys I have a couple of questions:-
1- What carrier does deliver passport? I'm wondering if is going to be royal mail as I won't be at home and have to collect it at post office.
2- I don't live the that address anymore but I didn't mention it at the interview as they would have re-arranged it, if I call them now and give my new address, will they re deliver to my new address in short time or again will be another awaiting game?!!!!!!!

Note: my friends living in my old address and if they at home then they will sign for me but if they out then!! Don't know what will happen!!!

Many thanks guys.
Applied for EEA4 on 24/02/2012.

Update

I had appointment today. he didn't ask my parents date of birth, just asking about my family n work, study even I forget some employers name in the middle ( I have done 8 jobs in last 5 years) .
He didn't note down any thing neither he was looking into computer neither he has any pen in his hand.. STRANGE - where as I have seen in the forum that they do note every thing you say etc .
Then he looked into computer for 1 minute and ask me these questions
List the addresses, Bank names that's all and again he started chatting with me
about my life in uk work, living place n etc. He was trying to give me pressure that may I forget some thing so he can catch but I was giving all correct answers ya I was nervous and I forgot some companies I work :) he was asking very quickly and fast. It look like he studied my life in UK like a story and then asking me questions :)

He was nice gentleman I enjoyed the interview even I was nervous for couple of minutes and interview last 15 minutes approx.

My journey is going to end soon so will update you ... I'm surprised I post in the form and no budy bother to reply ......anyway

all the best

Ryan.

Date of Passport Receipt:
UPDATE:
26/08/2014 - I sent them email (from online form) to enquire status about application around mid day and got reply in evening around 1900 that application was received on 01/08/2014 and is currently going through examination process and rest was standard reply, funny enough I got letter first, when I return home and read email reply later and was thinking that there is really a serious problem about latest information which may not be available to customer service team although their reply was correct that my application is still under process/examination but I would have expected something like waiting for interview or interview call letter sent

NOTE:
On a separate note, one of my known person received interview letter which was issues to him on 23/08/2014, it seems that extra working hours i.e. weekend

Yes you can do that. there is no harm in that.

I applied nationality from my old address and moved to new address and then apply passport application from new address.

Hi Spike,

Its true , I also had to run 11 years to get the passport. I'm still waiting for the passport printing sms ?
Do they always send the SMS ????
It was a good time in 2003 when I first arrived in UK.

Hope you enjoyed your journey.
