Re: British Passport application processing timelines (only)

Well, I received my British passport last week, so it's all over now, but would not rate very high the Post office check & send service. On another note, I wanted my passport and docs to be sent to my office and the lady at the Post office just gave me a blank sheet of paper and made me write my ad...

Re: British Passport application processing timelines (only)

It's really sad to hear post office refused to give that information. Only to offer you some solace... Check & Send service is tracked internally by every post office that offers it. When they have documents like your passport/naturalisation certificate, they can't afford to be careless. It's your ...

Re: British Passport application processing timelines (only)

Just wondering: is the interview date decided for you or do you need to ring them and tell them a preferred date and place? Thanks! When you call them they usually ask you where you would like to have the interview and give you the 1st available date. Of course, if it is not convenient for you it c...

Re: British Passport application processing timelines (only)

Don't worry, it takes a while for the applications to be logged on the system.
Even though I received the SMS 6 days after sending the application the helpline people could not confirm anything for another 2 days, so give it at least 7-8 days.
