I renewed online last Monday and sent the forms off the same day and I can see that the documents have arrived. They went to the Cardiff office and I just wondered if anyone had applied recently and how long it took to get the passport back.

I'm in no hurry for the passport just not very patient!

Mine was very quick - within about a week to 10 days IIRC but that was March.

I got mine back last week, I think it was just over 2 weeks. I applied for 3 at the same time, adult and child renewals and my youngest son's first passport, the new one came 2 days before the renewals!

I spoke to passport office today, and the turnaround is very quick they said, about 2 weeks.
