    I reached out on Twitter and was told that my application would be put on hold because I would need to go for an identity interview and they’re not currently being held.

    Is it possible to get your documents back early? I could try to renew my French passport in the meantime.

    Hi everyone

    Wanted to give some hope that it’s not always the 2 month wait I was dreading.

    Adult replacement for a previously lost passport – applied online and didn’t have to send in any documentation:

    Passport printed and sent 12:17pm on 11 August 2020
    Application approved 3:07pm on 8 August 2020
    Application being processed 1:19pm on 23 July 2020
    Identity details received 2:46pm on 22 July 2020
    Email sent to person confirming your identity 2:30pm on 22 July 2020
    Ask someone to confirm your identity 2:27pm on 22 July 2020
    Application submitted 2:27pm on 22 July 2020

    Just under one month total – now waiting for my passport to arrive. Clearly there’s a huge problem as some people take days and some people take 3 months…

    I only messaged on Twitter once right at the start and told them my holiday date (end of Sept)

    Good luck and hope everybody gets their holidays x

    Mine was an adult renewal with a name change, which went through quite quickly. No idea where my supporting docs are though!

    Had to post my timeline as this site has been a source of comfort for me the last two weeks. Very happy with my timeline despite the times feeling agonising (Sent old one to Durham, if that makes a difference!) considering I found out on 31/07 my passport was expired and we fly on 24/08! It’s been a tense couple of weeks.

    Honestly thought there was no hope, but won’t celebrate until it’s in my hands.

    Really hoping it comes Friday so I don’t have to go through another weekend of anxiety!

    Durham is still taking forever for foreign applications. Adult renewal (old one expired)

    Submitted end of June
    Officially received forms 3 weeks later, entered Processing right away

    No updates since then. I have escalated via Twitter multiple times. Crickets.

    I suspect they are not prioritizing foreign applications. Domestic applications are turned around in a week or 2, foreign applications go to the bottom of the pile.

    This is a horrible, immensely frustrating experience. I understand it’s slow. But it’s insane that some people are getting them from Durham in 1 week, while others are waiting 1-3 months. First in, first out. It’s not hard to do this fairly.

    Applicants from Hong Kong for BNO generally need to wait for 2.5 to 3 months, but some may be faster for unknown reasons.

    Would have been quicker but I posted the old passport late Thursday night so it wasn’t received until Monday

    You should be able to track via the link. My one was authorised on 14th and printed and sent this morning with TNT showing delivery on the 19th.

    No tracking link provided, just an email which has a paragraph saying:

    What happens next
    We’ve sent your new passport by secure delivery. In most cases it will be delivered by TNT delivery services. You can find out more at: https://delivery.tnt.com/tracking”

    When I click on the link it asks for my postcode, then a consignment number or PAN number. I have neither of those.
