Re: British Passport application processing timelines (only)

Hi Spike,

Based on my exprience I started chasing when I didnt hear after 5 weeks but got the interview letter straight on 6 weeks. So I think its better to chase if you dont hear any response after 5 weeks. And mention a travel date to them.

Hope this helps and Good Luck!
