The person confirming the phot took 3 days to do it and I didn’t send the passport off until they had done that which I sent on the 9th and it was received (but not processed) on the 10th. So really it has only taken 2 weeks which I am so chuffed with. We have a holiday booked on 28/07 and I was a bit worried I’d left it too late. I was also worried about the photo because there was a very faint shadow by her hair but it all went through fine, just in case anyone is worried about their photo.
I found this forum was an absolute godsend when I needed a bit of reassurance. So happy to post in here now to hopefully give some others a ray of hope. Now if the holiday doesn’t happen it won’t be my fault at least!
🤞🏻 GOOD LUCK WITH ALL YOUR PASSPORTS GUYS 🤞🏻
