Did you call passport office? Also, any signs of SMS from passport office?
I've emailed and rang them. Emails got passed around saying they would get back to me, but no reply.
Just rang the passport office and they said they're waiting on documentation from the Home Office (??!?!?) and basically there's nothing I can do.

No text, nothing received.
I have to travel on 5th June, and not really sure what to do at this point. :(

I'm not stressed out about it, yet.
I am more confused though about what documentation they need from the Home Office. They mentioned further checks as well which makes no sense at all.

I am guessing but documentation could be your photo and passport application form and other things which we dont know ( internal processes) . Try not to stress, you have got through the difficult part of the process.

It seems like applicants who have completed their biometrics around 1st week of Apr have started receiving approval letter! I did mine early may. So keeping fingers crossed that I should hear in 3-4 week..

Good luck all...

It looks like that! Maybe the moderators would be able to confirm or any other applicants who have applied on Self Employed basis. Sorry....

So is it the cases are allocated to the caseworker in line with when the biometrics are submitted or is it in line with when the application is submitted?

Same thing for my wife. Applied under spouse of British category on 9 march. Straight forward application. Has been living on same address since she arrived in UK. Been working in the same job for last 3 years, never worked before. No conviction. Doesn't even hold a driving license.

But still waiting for the decision.
