The journey is over :D good luck to everyone


Passport for: The First Passport After Naturalisation
Applying from: United Kingdom
Method of application: Online

Date of Return of Documents:25/07/2019

Extra info:
As I was moving house in few days after submitting my passport application online I have attached a cover letter when posted the relevant documents to explain I want my passport to be delivered at the new address.
On the 20th I have received a postal letter from the passport office at my new address where I had to confirm that I live there now and also to provide proof of any utility bills etc.
All my bills are online and I rarely get any statements in the post so I’ve only sent back the letter signed that I live at the new address already and I want my passport and documents to be delivered there.
On the 23rd when they received the letter back, passport office emailed me stating they have received the letter signed by me however they want post letters as proof of my new address also, I’ve emailed them back saying I don’t have any post letters and if It’s possible for me to email them proof of address, they emailed back and said they will accept them if I send it back by email so I did.

Passport for: Adult, the First passport after naturalisation
Applying from: United Kingdom
HMPO Office: Durham
Application Type: New
Applying from: United Kingdom
Method of application: Royal Mail Check & Send service (+ £5 to get supporting documents delivered back securely)
Date of Application: 26/06/2019
Date documents sent: 10/07/2019 (something came up and I sent documents two weeks later, than were countersignature and application dates).
Date Documents Received: 13/07/2019 (Text message from HM Passport:"We'll contact you by 03/08 if more info or an interview is required...")
Date of Text Confirming Passport Dispatch: 24/07/2019 (Text message from HM Passport:" You should receive your new passport within a few working days. We'll send your supporting documents separately.")

Dates of delivery process:
Date of Text from Courier: 25/07/2019 ("Your delivery from HM Passport Office is due by tomorrow...")
Date of Text from Courier: 25/07/2019 ("DX have attempted your delivery... Please .... arrange redeliver ...". It remains mystery, what "attempted" is meaning here. DX courier did not ring doorbell with flat number nor called my mobile phone, as other people (or couriers) usually do).
Date of arranging first redelivery: 25/07/2019 I arranged it online to be delivered on 26/07, I gave instructions to use the doorbell with flat number and description of house door.
Date of Text from Courier: 26/07/2019 ("DX have attempted your delivery...". Again - courier did not ring doorbell nor called my mobile phone.)
Date of arranging second redelivery: 26/07/2019 I called DX, I got promised that courier will call me, when trying to deliver it on 27/07.
Date of Passport received: 27/07/2019 (Courier rang the doorbell, did not call. Luckily they are able to learn, how to ring doorbell.)
Date of Return of Documents: 27/07/2019 (Same courier gave 2 envelopes: one with British Passport, the other with supporting documents).
