Passport Renewal Times

Hi All

Has anyone renewed a passport recently? Just wondering what processing times are currently? We are due to travel on Boxing day, sent my sons passport application on 2nd November, status has said we have received your old passport for over a week! Starting to worry that it wont come in time!

There's has been a problem with TNT delivering the passports and that's been causing lengthy delays.

This was on the BBC:bbc/news/business-59409509

There was also another Dibber having the same problem:

Hope it arrives soon.

I'm the dibber who has had the problem!

It stayed on the 'we recieved your old passport ' for about 3.5wks. It suddenly changes to 'its on its way'. For me that's when the problem started. TNT have had a big problem in getting passports out. I was on hold in total over 8hrs and couldn't get through to anyone. In the end I involved our mayor and local MP. I managed to speak to someone after that and I was told they'd get it out to me. It arrived the next day.

Was crazy and not right that it took an MP for them to deliver it. Passport office weren't interested as they'd done their part...they did say we wouldn't be eligible for an urgent appointment as it wasn't lost or stolen - TNT confirm they have it... hopefully this will all have resolved by the time they send yours out xx

I submitted my application online on 6th Nov. Granted, it then took me 2 weeks to get round to sending my old passport back. Posted that back on Thurs 18th, that was confirmed received on Wed 24th, new one was posted out on Thursday, arrived yesterday. So just over a week from when I actually sent my old one back.

I renewed my sons in September. Filled in the form online and returned his old one. Took about 5 weeks to receive the new passport.
