Do you guys know how long it usually takes to get your passport after you get the "Passport Printing" SMS? I got the SMS last Thursday but still no sign of it....Might wait till tomorrow and maybe chase them?
Update: Called the IPS and managed to get the tracking # for the DX courier (chose secure delivery) - apparently they tried to deliver in last Friday, obviously wasn't home but they also didn't leave a "we missed you" card! Grrr! Anyways, using the tracking number re-arranged the delivery to my work address for the coming Friday....hopefully it will work this time.
I never really had any good experiences with DX so far in the UK, missed deliveries, "claimed" deliveries, poor customer service etc.
