Re: British Passport application processing timelines (only)

Looking at the timeliness here it appears that waiting times are somewhere from 6-8 weeks. We had few quick processing weeks when home office hit headlines in need but now again I think delays are growing. 6 weeks to get a 1st passport in this modern day age I think is very unfair. We live in modern...

Re: British Passport application processing timelines (only)

Sorry to hear that mate. Let's hope they accept the evidence you provide them. I have emails from 2 recruitment companies asking me to contact them asap once I have a passport. You will be lucky if they take the trouble and accept other documents. Normally they think it's risky and at the risk of no...

Re: British Passport application processing timelines (only)

Don't think there is a way unless you widthdraw your application which will reset the whole timing again. You can try with showing them citizenship invitation letter from home office and see if they for the time being accept it. In my case nothing would satisfy recruitment people expect British pass...

Re: British Passport application processing timelines (only)

I feel your pain in exactly same situation. I don't know why the naturalization certificate is not a valid document. I guess all we can do is wait. News out of Durham office is looking good just few more weeks and we will look at all this waiting and huffing and puffing with a grin on our faces I th...

Re: British Passport application processing timelines (only)

Looks they are hiring more people. Let's hope they are able to bring the backlog down quick. How many people have their whole life on hold because of this passport saga

Not very well paid jobs. I guess they make their money on "overtime". I think they deserve to get better pay. Very undervalued job.
