Re: British Passport - what after application?

Thank you everyone, I have received the confirmation of receipt via sms on Saturday (weird?) and another SMS this morning saying my new passport is on its way. Incredibly fast!

Thank you again for all your help

Re: British Passport - what after application?

I got a receipt confirming the payment of the fee + secure return, and have not heard anything since. In the pass...
