My passport has just arrived through the letterbox. Progress details below, took exactly 3 months from start to finish. I chased it on 15th June and requested a call back from the progress team which I didn’t receive, but the day after the application was approved.

I didn’t get any tracking details, passport office said couriers are collecting twice per week. I didn’t see which company delivered it but it’s either TNT or DX. Haven’t received old passport yet, but assuming that will come via Royal Mail.
