Passport expires in a few days. Going on holiday 15th July but didn’t think i would be going to used money on doing my garden up. With covid restrictions lifting I thought what if…. So did my application late at night online (last week) Monday 15th June and posted passport next day recorded next day delivery. Application Submited – 15th June Documents Received – 22nd June Application Approved- 23rd June All at Durham Office. Looks like they should print and send passport next day so should get it soon. Very thankful saying my prayers to the passport gods and hope that everyone else gets their passports on time for their holidays.
