Status never changed and honestly following this forum and seeing loads of people receiving their passports within a month timeframe is frustrating and tearing my hair out. So many calls and chats and even asking for help from MP got me nowhere. 11 weeks and counting.

I had to go to the London Passport Office to basically cry there to get this moving forward. If your documents are in Durham office, you have all reasons to worry about your application if it is over 10 weeks. Just call the helpline press 8 and 3 in order to talk to someone to get a meaningful update.

Visited London office last week and was told that my application was in Durham while I submitted it to Bootle.

Type: First Adult passport after Naturalisation
Method: Online
Passport Office: HMPO Liverpool Bootle
Online application submitted: 14 April 2022
Documents sent: 14 April 2022
Documents delivered by Royal Mail: 18 April 2022
Documents confirmed received by HMPO: 28 April 2022 (showing on my tracker)
Application approved: Waiting
Passport printed: Waiting
Passport sent: Waiting
Passport received: Waiting

Tried emailing them but no help. Missed my flight because of that. Tried calling 8 and 3, they said my application had only been with them for 6 weeks (they logged it in the system on the 17th May). It is absurd.
