Hi @yasmine think I leave it a few days and then email
My local mp one of the renewals is for my disabled son which would
Never understand we carnt do anything cause of a passport delay so is quite important to him
More than anything
We are in the same position. We realised 6 days after our daughters ran out and reapplied the same day.
-Application submitted 14th June.
-Identity details received and application recieved 15th June.
– Documents received 17th June.
-Application being processed 19th June.
Ours is at Durham too, we travel to Spain on 23rd July so I’m slightly panicking now!!
@LauraW have you phoned or tweeted HMPO? From looking at your timeline it appears as though there are others on here who submitted after you and are at a more advanced stage, there isn’t any logic to the system. I read somewhere that a note referencing their departure date had been added to their application which may speed things up
Child’s renewal application made on 22nd May and old passport sent on 24th May to Durham Passport office. Acknowledged received on 1st June and should hopefully be arriving today. So pretty much 1 month from acknowledgement of receipt to coming back…
Passport printed and sent 1:26pm on 1 July 2020
Application approved 5:43pm on 30 June 2020
Application being processed 2:50pm on 1 June 2020
Documents received 8:30am on 1 June 2020
Application received 9:41am on 22 May 2020
There getting beond the joke to be fair all the offices are they don’t give a crap that most people ain’t just booked holidays now we’re booked when leaving last year and now restrictions are being lifted we either go or loose thousands for months they said don’t sent In Your passports now it’s like send them in but u prob won’t get them back in time I wouldn’t of followed the advise and sent them months ago
It took Peterborough 8 days from signing for it to say they had received my son’s old passport. It’s at the process stage now. My daughter’s is a few stages ahead and only took 3 days to process before approval. Seems like they are starting to process passports quicker so hopefully yours should be acknowledged soon.
So 9 days then hopefully mine be Monday then just I sent 4 off to 3 different offices and none of them have said they received even though i know they have thought some would of been quicker than others though
