Hi everyone, wanted to give an update from a uk based renewal.
Had my passport stolen whilst overseas in Mar, applied 19 Mar and had identity details received 25 Mar, application progressing 26 Mar. I’ve just had application approved today – 13 May and advised sent 13 May. Would have been 7 weeks tomorrow on progressing.
To advise, both the application approved and passport on its way emails went into my junk mail so check there if you’ve not received email updates.
Worth nothing mine wasnt a straight forward renewal as I was replacing a stolen passport but assume this part was dealt with when it went from identity details received to application in progress.
