Awesome service from the passport office... TNT service also ok.

Finally the end of an almost 6 year journey, from initial spouse visa application through FLR, ILR, naturalisation and finally receipt of the new Dark Blue British passport.

This forum has been a great help and beacon of hope. Keep up the good work and wish everybody success in their applications and endeavours..... signing off... :D :D :D

Applied for the fast track due to medical emergency abroad. Provided all the evidences and nothing! Calling the passport office, no one knows what's happening. Was given the emergency phone number and they were talking like they are from another planet all together. Said that I should travel with my old passport, which they now hold, because I had to send them the original. Asked to return my old passport, they said they don't know where it is currently. :cry: :cry: :cry:
