    Hi
    I applied for my first adult passport on the 26th Feb and sent my supporting documents on the 28th. Should I have had a notification to say they have received the document by now or is it too early for a response?

    Edit: I sent the birth certificate to Bootle if thats needed information

    It is taking 8 working days to be uploaded onto the system. And rayray777, I would be ringing as that seems an awfully long time for documents to be uploaded

    I sent my docs on 16th feb (recorded so they were delivered 17th) but the system was only updated 28th feb to say they were received . So I prob wouldn’t panic just yet. Processing passport started 8th March. Also Peterborough office.

    I’m in the same situation as the original poster. I sent my documents on 28 Feb via signed delivery, and I got confirmation that they arrived in Peterborough on the 1st of March. So far, there’s no update in the system.

    I’m an EU citizen with settled status who naturalised in February (with no effect on my other citizenship). Does anyone know if it’s still legal to travel using my EU identity card + settled status? Obviously I can enter the EU, but will I have difficulties at the UK border? I know ID cards are allowed for those with status for another few years, but I’m not sure if naturalisation “voids” settled status. If I try to enter the UK using my ID card, I’ll have to see a border agent. If they ask where is my passport and I tell them it’s with the UK Passport Office, I don’t want to get in trouble. Thanks for any help / advice!

    Hi LAD, same here – sent in my passport & naturalisation documents, Tracking shows it arrived on 02/03.
    Need a passport to travel on 15/04 but won’t be able to use ID as travelling long-haul distance.

    Not sure, if you can still travel with ID, best check with UK Border Force.
