    Forgot to say this was for a child’s renewal.


    I am really worried that my passport won’t arrive on time I am on doc received 4 October and my holiday is 7 November should I be ok or should I do fast track do you need your old passport for that


    Hi glad to hear some light .. did you get the passport on time for travel? I’m waiting for child renewal and we fly out 23rd (next week) I have messaged via Twitter too and endless calls to passport office begging to help but just general info given ie 10 weeks wait 😩 although they have noted our dates of travel so just waiting ..


    Hi does anybody know the direct email for Glasgow? Having no luck trying to contact them by phone and no reply on twitter. Thanks in advance.



    How long has everyone been waiting recently!??

    I applied start of Jan and still waiting, I kind of need my passport fast but not urgent so couldn’t get an appointment.



    Hope someone can help.
    How long is it taking from Glasgow for adult renewals at the moment.
    Totally forgot about the added months not meaning anything anymore and I fly last week of April.
    Is there any hope? I sent my old passport off today.

    Thanks in advance.


    I’ve been checking this forum regularly so just wanted to update with my experience. Sent two applications for child renewals one went to Durham (our closest office) and one went to Glasgow ….both passports arrived a day apart.

    Glasgow office:
    Submitted online application: 23rd Feb
    Old PP sent/counter signatory completed: 24th Feb
    Royal Mail tracking signed for: 25th Feb
    Old PP officially received: 8th March
    Application approved: 11th March
    Sent: 14th March
    Passport arrived: 16th March – I wasn’t in and it was posted through the door.

    3 weeks 1 day – start to finish Durham office
    3weeks 0 days – start to finish Glasgow office.

    I was sent both an email and text at each of these stages so there really is no need to check the progress of the application unless you’ve not put your contact details.


    Has anyone had recent experience with Glasgow passport office? Our application was transferred there from Liverpool on 16th March. Has been showing processing since 21st March. Thanks


    Is anyone waiting for their passport from this office? I submitted a child first application on 7th March, documents were linked on 23rd March but absolutely no movement since


    I’ve been checking this forum loads so thought I would add my waiting times. Passport arrived 4th April, didn’t get any delivery tracking info.
