    Grantham Traveller, thanks again for sharing all this incredibly useful information! By logging on to the tracking page delivery.tnt.com/tracking with my “PAN number” (without the letters, as you pointed out) I found out that our baby’s passport is going to be delivered on Wednesday.

    By the way, out of curiosity, did you get the “blue” version as well?

    Hello Rothbard. Pleased to be of help. Of course it’s ridiculous that this sort of information isn’t automatically available, is it not? Why on Earth doesn’t the Passport Office tell you how to track the delivery when they tell you they’ve sent it? Why did TNT not send me tracking information? Why did two Passport Office members of staff insist that the courier would automatically send tracking information when that never happened? The list is endless …

    Delighted you now know your delivery information. Fingers crossed!!

    Yes: I did get the new blue one with its rather differently displayed information: larger b&w photo and a small colour one on the facing page, as well as sort of title page with the photo on that too.

    Glad to hear you got your sons first passport. I managed to speak to someone on the phone today but they just followed scripts by the word then she lost her temper when i asked why some offices were turning round new child applications from May already, whereas mines been stuck with Liverpool since mid March.

    Refused to allow my application to be sent to another center for processing.

    Then proceeded to tell me that i should not have booked a holiday without having a passport in hand (i had incorrectly assumed 8 months was more than enough time to get a passport for a UK national!)

    At this point I can’t quite believe how much of a shambles this actually is. I’m a dual national and will be turning 18 soon which require me to administrative things with urgency. I sent my application to liverpool on the 14th of March. There is no simple way to get my passport back and they keep spewing out the same garbage each time. This is freaking me out.

    I’ve just received this text/email about my son’s passport application

    We are sorry that it is taking longer than usual to process your passport application due to Covid-19.
    Please bear with us. If we require any information from you before a passport can be issued, we will contact you

    How long generally after this text can you expect another status update?

    I’ve just had that email/text as well so assume it’s a generic one sent to everyone.

    Had a text similar to that one on 30th April and 14th May…so I’m not getting my hopes up that it means very much.

    If I don’t hear anything towards the end of next week, then I’m hitting up the Twitter account, I’ll be needing my documents back for a visa application that needs submitting before the end of August this year.
