It took exactly around 21 days or 3 weeks from the time they aknowledged documents received. I believe this is the time you need to take in consideration.

My passport application journey has been a longgggg one.

Applied 21st of April after naturalization

Application received 4th of May and that was the last update I received.

I called more than 100 times, escalated to the upgrade team, escalated to the expedited service, Also got my MP involved and all my efforts just proved frutile.

During this time I cancelled my holiday twice and had to rebook.

Did some research and found out I could get my passport if my application has been over 6 weeks and in my case 12 weeks and if I will be flying in the next 48 hours.

So I travelled down to the passport office in Liverpool, the journey took 2hrs from where I live. Got there at 7am today 16th of July and I got seen at 10.30. My passport application was approved 11am today and I collected my passport at 12 noon.

If you are in the same situation, my advice to you is to travel to your passport office to get your passport. It does not matter where your application is being looked at. 12weeks wait was sorted in 2 hours.

Thanks and good luck to everyone still waiting. Flying out on monday happy days!!!!
