    Hi guys, my passport has just been approved. Do they print straight away? I am due to fly on the 18th and was waiting for a call from the upgrade team. Will my passport arrive in time for the 18th?

    one thing you can do is download an app called shop. You put your email address in and address and it alerts you when any courier has a parcel to deliver to you, even if you havent been told something is being delivered. That would possibly put your mind at rest once it has been approved at the passport office, they may not update their system quickly so a passport could be on its way to you and the tracker may not always tell you it is.

    I received my passport 3 days after approval.

    @hreeve3 – I have exactly the same question on the same timeline!

    My passport application was approved on 13 May at 9:29am, and I am waiting for it to be in my hand so that I can visit my sick father in the UK (I’m in Ireland). Will you let us know if/when you get any updates, so we can compare progress?

    Hi @bagheera I have just got off the phone with the progress team. They have said my passport was printed the same day (13th) and should be on its way to delivery supplier.

    Hi @hreeve3 – that’s great news! And coincidentally my application status has just been updated to ‘Your passport has been printed.’
    Such a relief…

    Hi just wondering did your tracking ever update after approval? My sons renewal has gone to approved 4th June rang this morning to be told it has been printed the same day. I am still waiting for delivery or any updates on delivery time. We are in the Republic of Ireland and we are due to fly 13th June. Really hoping we get it delivered in time.

    Delivered 2 days after approval.

    We never got a text or the tracker didn’t update to say it was it for delivery, but was a welcome surprise when TNT knocked at the door at 7am this morning!

    @davbell87 that’s great, delighted yours has arrived for you. Still no sign of my sons today unfortunately. Been on the phone between the HMPO DHL and TNT all morning and no one seems to know where it is now. So I’m just playing a waiting game really. Looking to re schedule flights from Monday to Thursday next week in the hope that it arrives by Wednesday now.

    Reply to #17242 @CAZ86 have you checked that DHL actually complete the delivery in Ireland and it’s not transferred to An Post? I remember 10 years ago when living in Ireland my passport was delivered by local post office, is it worth checking with An Post to see if they have it, just an idea …..

    I have a similar question. I wanted to know what is the longest time someone has waited for passport to be printed after it gets approved? A friend of mine is waiting since 31st May, but I see here that everyone has it printed pretty soon after approval. We are supposed to go on a holiday together end of June, so I am starting to worry. Is there anything that can be done to speed it up?

    Reply to #17250 @Nobody cannot give an an accurate time line but from reading posts it appears from Approved to printing stage is normally between 2 and 10 days depending on the passport office, printing must be be over q 24Hr period as i received my notification that the passport was printed at 4:50 am, check the HMPO tracking app
    otherwise like most of us a phone call to the PO is required to check the status, some people receive their passports before tracking has been updated.
