@username09643

Can I ask when you applied and also when they got the birth certificate?

I’ve been waiting and no update yet!

Applied on 4 March. Docs received 14 March only now showing on system. Not sure if it will be back in time for holiday 5th May. I thought nine weeks would be ok (when I checked it said five weeks average time). Stressed :( x

You can ring them to chase it up as it’s after 14 working days. Fingers crossed x

I was told yest that once the documents are scanned on there is 8-10 working day delay to get passport and the delay is scanning the documents onto system and once that’s done it’s quicker (this is for a new child passport)
Seems too quick to me…will keep updating!

Hi all, did anyone send theirs to Peterborough? It’s not saying documents received (2 weeks later than they did receive it). I’m wondering if we need to cancel holiday. We h e four weeks left abs we are now five weeks into waiting :(

@ a1l320n oh sorry had a typo. It’s now saying received. 2 weeks and a bit later than sent. I’ve no idea if we will get it back in time for holiday beginning May. Where are you up to with yours? X
