Today is the 1st of April, so It's been well over 2 weeks since my application was being processed and I haven't heard a word from HMPO Liverpool, probably thanks to the pandemic, but it's been very frustrating.I have seen people who applied later then myself whose passports have been approved, which is even more frustrating. Grrrrrghhhhh!!
