Dear HM Passport Office,
I would be very grateful if someone could inform me of the expected turnaround time for the renewal of 3 passports. I received a text to say that the applications have been received on 8 May. We fly on 4th July. I have been reading on line that some people have waited 7 - 8 weeks when the website quotes a 3 week turnaround and have only received their passports in time when they agreed to pay for a fast track upgrade. Is there currently a delay or backlog?
Thank you for your email.
In order to locate your applications we require the barcodes to be able to trace the applications and give you advice.
Alternatively you can give us the names, dates of birth and post code of applications and we will forward your request for progress to the office processing the applications.
