My estimation says that your passport should be printed in next 4 days. Let us see :)
Afraid to say no change as of yet!

Fingers crossed soon
A little bit surprised looking at your timelines... let us wait for another 1-2 days .... i think your status should change to printing.

Re: First time passport application

What is your timeline so far GIGPH? I assume you won't have to wait too much longer if my mum applied April but didn't send her docs in until early June. Her wait was 30 working days from sending the documents. I applied online on 18th June, docs received by them on 22nd June - so if you look at 30...

I thought they were prioritizing applications received up to April 31st (and then the rest will get processed)? I assume they haven't cleared that backlog yet. We are hearing a lot from those who applied in Mar-April when the system was on-hold. No news from people who applied in May/June and alrea...

Hi All

Can someone please suggest what is the next status after 'Application processing' if the application has made some progress ? It has been showing the same status as 'Application processing' for weeks now.

If anyone else gets the naturalization cert please keep this group posted. Atleast we will know that new batch has started to trickle.
