Have you had an update? Mine moved to Processing on July 27th and I’m trying to work out what the average time it takes for an adult renewal.August 8, 2020 at 8:07 pm #2425
Still processing! 4 weeks now as of yesterday!! I’m actually so fed up and angry because there are people who have applied at the end of July and had there passports already! I can’t quite believe how random everything is!!
I have tried contacting them through twitter as well. I was told to PM them with my code but they still haven’t read it so on Monday I plan to try and phone again because 4 weeks processing is ridiculous imo.August 8, 2020 at 8:21 pm #2426
That’s utterly absurd. People on here have had them within a week of applying here, with no extenuating circumstances. Crazy how they’re not working from the earliest applications as a first priority.August 8, 2020 at 8:42 pm #2427
It’s made me so annoyed. I deliberately used a booth to ensure my picture wouldn’t get returned, I was more then prompt in getting all the supporting documents sent and my identity verified, it’s like I’ve been lost or something! First thing Monday I will be on that telephone to them!August 10, 2020 at 8:20 am #2429
Can anyone tell me about the return of their birth certificates? I’ve been processing for the 4 weeks now, I’ve not even had my mums or my birth certificates back yet.
Phoning them today though.August 10, 2020 at 11:14 am #2431
According to the passport office they’re taking 8 weeks to process.
If I haven’t had a call for interview in two weeks time I’ll have to contact them again.
I travel exactly 4 weeks from today 😳 starting to get a little nervous now!August 10, 2020 at 12:29 pm #2434solman07Participant
Royal Mail tracking shows passport was signed for at the Durham office on the 03/08/2020 by a GSIMPSON.
Still waiting on it to be “received” at Durham. Judging by some posts on here, its about 2 weeks before it stops saying “Send your old passport” , is that correct?

Yes that’s about right, mine took 13 days to show as received despite being sent recorded and signed for the next day.August 10, 2020 at 12:39 pm #2436solman07Participant
Weird as some peoples applications to Durham were sent a day or two before mine and it shows their documents as received.August 10, 2020 at 12:43 pm #2438
There just doesn’t seem to much method with them. There are people who applied after me but recurved their passports first.
Mines been processing for ages! I’ll have to escalate it if nothing happens in two weeks.August 11, 2020 at 1:19 pm #2453londonpassport123Participant
I applied for an adult renewal with a name change, which I received today. I had previously got in touch with customer services to request a faster renewal for ID purposes but I don’t think that actually got processed. I received the passport today because TNT has ‘tried’ to deliver on Friday but apparently we weren’t in (we definitely were!). I haven’t received my old passport or my marriage certificate even though I paid extra for the recorded return delivery.

Are there any First Adult passports who have had an interview?
I am told now if by Monday next week I haven’t had a call for an interview then I have to contact them again. I’m travelling two weeks Monday so it’s getting way too close for comfort now.August 18, 2020 at 1:45 pm #2543lrosstrevorParticipant

I Csnt work our what it is with my application?
You’re a first timer like me. And your processing time was 9 days, yet I have been processing for almost 6 weeks now (6 on Friday) and they told me processing was taking 8 weeks.
How is it that these are all massively varied in times.
