Here is my timeline. I just told them via DM on twitter that we had a holiday booked for mid July. They took 25l4 hours to reply to my DM. dont msg them again otherwise your message goes to the bottom of the queue again! They will respond. I was very polite in my DM, but my anxiety had been through the roof worrying about it, especially after seeing people were getting passports back when they had applied after I had.
