Below an update to my timeline. It’s a standard adult renewal sent to Liverpool – I live in Germany.
Interestingly yesterday evening I received a second email from DHL with another shipment number, so I didn’t know which passport was supposed to be arriving today. Turns out it was the old one but with the second tracking number I got, I can already see that the new passport is well on its way. It’ll arrive tomorrow or Monday, I guess.
@Kaystar89: the forms changed during my application, too. They didn’t contact me saying I needed to redo anything but I don’t know if that delayed the application internally somehow.
