    They really need to sort that AI image checker when you upload it, telling you that it is not fine there will save a load of stress and make life much simpler! The Home Office – where they never do anything the easy way.

    Passport was posted on 10th June, still not received. I have had my old passport posted back. I’ve DM’d them on Twitter. Just when I thought I was going very quickly…..

    Hopefully this may be of use to someone . . .

    Other half did postal application (no idea why!) for adult renewal in mid May. Think the pre-addressed envelope had the Durham office on it.
    Anyway the cheque was cashed on May 13th.
    Received letter to say things were taking longer than usual on the 30 May.
    Heard nothing more so getting panicky she tweeted them on the 12th June to ask how she could check the progress as she hadn’t written the number from the form down when she sent it.
    Twitter reply told her to contact the Liverpool office via email which she did. And in this message she said she was getting worried as she needed the passport imminently.
    They didn’t respond, however 2 days later she received another letter same as the first one (from an address in Southampton) telling her that things were taking longer than usual.
    The following day (17th June) her passport arrived.
    Don’t know if the chase up made a difference but it’s quite a coincidence if it didn’t!

    Just over 4 weeks. Fingers crossed the passport & supporting documents are sent next week.
    I did hit them up on Twitter letting them know I needed the supporting docs back for a visa extension/renewal application.

    Passport processed by Durham office.

    Hi guys!

    Quick one – has anyone had the issue where you have to have an interview for a first UK passport? I’ve applied for mine start of March, processing March 20th and have had no update except for “it’s with a technician at the Liverpool office”. I escalated this and on a call today they’ve said that all interviews are paused indefinitely, and all new first UK passports require one. I never thought this was the case so would be good to know if anyone has a similar experience?

    Hi All,

    Just had the approved text and email for a child renewal from Durham. Phew

    Application made 15th May
    Docs sent 18th May
    Old Passport received 26th May
    Processing 26th May
    ApproveD 19th June

    I also had a call this morning from Glasgow caveats as her previous passport had a caveat I’m so once sent back from them it was approved the same day which I was impressed with.

    I did chase up on Twitter yesterday which I believe helped.

    Seems things are starting to move now though!
