    There are a lot of replies about passport renewal and first time applications, but does anyone have experience applying for a passport after losing it? My friend lost her passport last year and only applied for a new one a few days ago, we’re meant to be going on holiday on the 27th August. Does anyone have experience with how long this takes compared to other types of application?


    My application, sent to Durham. Adult renewal:

    Passport arrived today 01/07/20.

    Reason for delay was TNT kept going to a similarly named street. I had to make a complaint to have it arrive. Doesn’t really matter as my holiday has been cancelled. 😂

    Mine was a replacement as my dog decided to eat mine, started process on the 18th may and approved on 30th June


    @jamouse guessing readings not a strong point for you fella, application was submitted on the 3rd… thanks for letting me know we have left it late tho really constructive….course being self employed and my wife being cabin crew so on our ass during the pandemic…please forgive us for letting it slip our mind….your right some have waited 100 days some have waited 14 doesnt make it right, completely understandable if every single persons application is held up but to have no consistency is a shambles

    @wittcomb – its all good and well submitting your application on the 3rd but if the passport office are still waiting for your supporting documentation nothings getting done. Your documents weren’t received until 11th June and subsequently your application didn’t move to ‘Application being processed’ until the 12th June.

    Its very good of you to raise the issue of other people affected by long wait times with your MP – i’m sure people affected by long wait times will be grateful. Perhaps forward planning might be something you can look to improve going forward.


    Just had a text and email to say my first child’s passport has been approved, just waiting for it to be printed. Sent to Durham, and been in processing since 10th June after receiving application on the 27th May.


    I just received a text to say that my adult renewal (sent to Durham) has been approved!!
    Started to process after receiving documents on the 1st June so 1 month in total.
    I did use twitter as well a few times to chase them so wondering if that did help?
    Major relief for me now just waiting to receive it!!
    Good luck to all those still waiting, hope you get some success soon


    @jamouse sent my docs same day and were received the day after fella… thanks for the advice maybe you could work on picture taking skills moving forward
