As title says, it’s now been 2 weeks since Royal Mail delivered the supporting document for a first passport. Just wondering how long others have had to wait for theirs to be marked as received (for a first passport only)? I don’t want to start calling up if I need to wait a bit longer, but equally don’t want to be complacent and let time drag on if the document has gone awol. Thank you.

I sent my child’s first passport application to the Peterborough office on the 3rd of March, signed on the 4th of March. Still not updated to reflect that the documents have been received.
I spoke to a lovely representative who advised that they have an exceptionally high volume of documents being received at the moment and that their usual approx 8 working days to scan documents into the system, is now approx 14 working days.
Not ideal, but hopefully this is of some help to others.
This is my application history (child renewal) I am worrying sick as we got flights for the 31st and when we applied the maximum time was 4 weeks, and our application is showing processing for 8 days now
Application being processed 12:15pm on 16 March 2022

One old passport sent to Corby
Still not updated as received although it has been signed for.
One same day One old passport sent to Peterborough they have updated as received a few days after.
2 applications and old passports sent to Liverpool they have updated as documents received 2 days after signed for delivery.
So all depends on the offices and as long as you have tracked your delivery and have a signature it’s most probably reached the offices but needs to be scanned in or assigned to an employee.
