    My application was done online and approved last Wednesday the 1st July.

    The new passport was printed and sent at 8pm that night.

    Today the 6th July I am still waiting for the new one to show up. Is this normal? Or should I being to worry its got lost in the post?

    Do we get any tracking information at all?

    Finally got ours approved what a ride, we fly Monday so has been a massive panic, genuinely think if your not flying with in 2 weeks they don’t really care. I had the local MP involved didnt make a blind bit of difference, best way was to get the twitter team onboard they seemed to make things move more, ive rang them, emailed them, MP has rang and emailed been horrendous. Eventually twitter team asked me to prove flights which were booked last year. Chased again today and the actual examiner rang me and told me she was going to approve now and get sent out, with in 10 minutes it was done she even sent it track and trace and emailed me the reference separately, it’s usually TNT so this was relief also. They did have my travel date as the 21/07 despite me telling them twice it was the 13/07. Good luck everyone its a lottery no real order to how they are being processed and this was Glasgow office.

    Finally received child renewal. We made three applications on the same day. All sent to Glasgow, two received within two weeks, this one we have emailed, contacted on Twitter, contacted our MP and contacted the complaints team – this seemed to be most effective. We were due to fly in the 17th. Ironically, the day they approved it TUI cancelled our flight.

    @debsyh that’s a similar timeline to ours except we’ve been in processing since 10th June and no progress since. I’ve emailed my MP and if that doesn’t help I’ll phone complaints until they sort it out.

    @Pipine I would ring the complaints line. The guy there was really helpful and gave me his number to ring back if nothing happened.
