      I am too. Everytime I called I got hung up on. I managed to get through via the live chat in the end and the lady I spoke to was very helpful.

    Applied online for a first adult passport (previously held child’s) on 23 April. Received new passport today 18 days later. Am in shock tbh!

      Did you get online updates before it arrived? Or did it just turn up?

        Had text messages at each step. They approved the passport on 9/5 so we were very surprised when it arrived this morning. You can also track progress through passport website.
