its hard to say as my application went in via Post office check and send on 13th April, was received on 22nd April and then at the Durham passport office on 25th April and nothing at all has happened with my application since its still waiting to be examined.
ive seen other applicants on here that have applied after mine and received already so not sure what the process is for getting it examined as im already over the 10 weeks waiting.
ive emailed expedite team and still waiting for reply as that can be 3 work day , ive used webchat , ive called and still no further forward so its just a wait and hope i think
Given the 10 week restriction before contacting them, you will probably now need to wait until you are two weeks from your travel date before they will even listen to you. My 10 weeks is up on 13th July but I contacted them on Saturday as I’m due to travel on the 23rd July. Someone should be getting back to me in the next 72 hours commencing from 9th July.
Contact your MP to see if they can do anything. My MP has been extremely helpful so far and it does make you feel you have someone else fighting your case.
