    Has anyone had there passport delivered via Royal Mail rather than TNT?

    I got an email from Royal Mail to say they are delivering a package from HM Passport Office. It’s being sent from Northern Ireland (my supporting documents went to Peterborough) I’ve been waiting over 10 weeks, feeling a bit beside myself

      Hi gemma usually it’s TNT but if you got text from royal mail i guess it’s a new service partner with hmpo. Me too peterborough 7 weeks and still haven’t had a word from them I’m meant to travel on 21st May slowly accepting i won’t be travelling.

        I’m waiting on Peterborough for my child’s first passport. Was yours a renewal? It said 5 weeks when I applied and that’s been and gone. Have tried getting through on the phone and haven’t got through to them once yet, always cut off. Anyone else finding the same?

        It is a disaster i submitted my application on 18 February and it shows my application is being processed since 5th April. they ruined all my three plans, and the funny things no one answers when you call to the number they have on their web.

    Tracking a passport. What is the next step after it says “application being processed?” Its only been a week since I’ve seen that status and we are scheduled to go to Canada the first week of June via an Alaskan cruise. Is there any other document that we can get? I have a valid Resident green card here in the US.

    I’m desperate and utterly depressed. First of all this is all my fault I obviously didn’t allow enough time. But I’m due to get married on the 16th may abroad, flying out on the 10th May. I did my application online for my first adult passport on the 23rd March. Today I had to book my virtual interview the earliest date was the 4th May. I was then told after my interview it will take a further 7 to 10 working days. Obviously my passport it’s going to come in time and I just don’t know what to do. I can’t just give up all the money spent, people that our working on our wedding, people I will let down , family friends all paid out money to fly to Malta and celebrate our wedding. The guy said if he gets a cancellation then he will let me know and of course I’m going to ring 3 times a day and ask for cancellations. Any advice gladly received
