Re: British Child First Passport Delay

Probably I’m too impatient. They received it on 09/11/2016.
Last year same time, my son got within a week.
Not sure what happened this time :--(
Will be chasing them after it has passed 3 weeks.

British Child First Passport Delay

I'm not sure if anybody is facing this issue, but I'm facing significant delay in getting my child's first passport, who is a British national at birth and only few month's old. What could be the reason for this?
