ETA delayed. Initially 28/05, then 03/06, and now 05/06.
At least they changed your date.. mine is still 27/05.

Re: First time passport application

Today it has changed from “your application has been received” to “application is being processed”. Which makes me think there is a 2 week backlog at the moment.

Exactly the same situation for me, applied on 30th and today it started to show on the tracker with an estimated date of delivery on 27th May. I wish Cit...

Received letter today(dated12/4/19). Sent them 950 and other things today. Is it too late for this ceremony? Fingers crossed
Did your letter also say 5 days to send back? If so, I’d say you have chances. Congrats on your approval btw!
