Just thought to let you know that for my 1st adult application the processing time from application to passport delivery has been less than 1 month (and not 7 weeks as originally advised by HO).
Does anyone know when/how the original documents sent are being returned?

1) TNT deliver 8am-8pm – you need to be in to sign for delivery and they do not advise est. eta whatsoever.
2) Original documents are to be delivered separately. Do not know when or how. If anyone knows, please share!
