Can I ask when you applied and also when they got the birth certificate?
I’ve been waiting and no update yet!
username09643 · 29/03/2022 13:45
@a1l320n hey, I applied 2nd March, documents were signed for on the 4th but only got the text to say documents received on the 18th! When did you apply?
Lovemylittlebear · 29/03/2022 13:48
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
a1l320n · 29/03/2022 13:53
So mine must be lost. I sent it on the 9th but not tracked stupidly. But not showing up
Also holiday booked thought would have plenty time

You can ring them to chase it up as it’s after 14 working days. Fingers crossed x
Lovemylittlebear · 29/03/2022 14:21
Sent older sons to different office later and his passport just came through door. So approx 20 days for him. Just the baby’s we need which is looking bleak As seems so slow there x

I did live chat this morning and they said I just need to wait 😬 we go early may too x
Bells3032 · 29/03/2022 14:33
Ours arrived this morning. It's taken five weeks since application.
username09643 · 29/03/2022 14:50
@Bells3032 what date was it approved and what date was it printed? X
Bells3032 · 29/03/2022 14:53
Was approved last Friday (10 days ago) and printed on sat just gone. Got not dispatch notice or tracker

I applied on 19th Feb (for my child renewal) and I am still waiting to approve :( I cancelled my holiday in April.
a1l320n · 31/03/2022 10:38
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!

Applied 18th feb, sent docs straight away and had passport back 10 days ago. Just waiting for the birth certificate back (which I paid £5 special delivery return).
username12777 · 31/03/2022 11:09

Lovemylittlebear · 31/03/2022 12:43

username12777 · 31/03/2022 14:02
@Bells3032 stupid question did it come with your normal post x
Bells3032 · 31/03/2022 14:04
No. thankfully cos our post is really sketchy. got delivered by a delivery company but just got put through the door
Lovemylittlebear · 06/04/2022 14:02
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 · 06/04/2022 14:04
@Lovemylittlebear I sent it to bootleg but it took exactly 3 weeks to update documents recieved from day I posted it.
Lovemylittlebear · 06/04/2022 14:08
@ 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
a1l320n · 06/04/2022 15:49
Our holiday also may 1st. I was told that my documents were recieved on 30th (posted on the 10th). Not sure what to do either! No other word since then…..
