Baby’s first passport

Hi there

Just wondered if anyone had experience with applying for a first passport recently. I haven’t got any travel booked but was just interested in turn around time.

I submitted mine on the 21st July, all documents have gone to the Newport office. They have confirmed receipt.

How quickly are they turning them around at the moment as it says expect 10 weeks on line. Not crossing my fingers but was wondering if I could still hope for a last minute get away abroad before school starts in September.

All experiences gratefully received. xx

A couple of months ago it was 2 weeks.

I applied for a child’s renewal 13 days ago and I got an email today saying it’s on its way.

There is a website where you can find out the average.
