Good morning all,
I have read this forum regularly over the last 2 weeks, thank you for all of the information, it has been hugely useful and a big comfort.
We booked a holiday pre Covid and had to get a child’s passport renewed. Our travel date is 31st July.
We got very polite but firm push back from the PP office up until we were 2 weeks away from travel at which point it all completely changed gear and was resolved immediately.
Stay calm everyone, if you can prove you are travelling within 2 weeks they really do get these things processed as fast as possible.
Good luck.
Below is our timeline.
