Is there any way you can change the flights and explain it’s a covid-19 issue? They may cooperate then?
The only reason I have applied now for a passport is because the virus changed a wedding date for my mum and the airlines wouldn’t change the flights or cancel them, as the flight is still going ahead. So, she got me cheap flights with her and we are having a holiday together. I have never been abroad so I am praying it goes ahead!!
Please keep us posted on your progress. I thought my documents may have shown up by now. @Yasmine applied a day before me and has been successful up to this point so I am hopeful! Although, I am wondering if first child passports are being dealt with quicker? Who knows, there doesn’t seem to be any specific rhyme or reason to their working practices at the moment.
