I applied for a renew on the UK passport using this new online fill in a form service. On their website they were giving a guide line of 4 weeks turn around.
I am now at 6 weeks and the passport has not even reached the examination team. I am now being told by the passport office they have a big back log and it is taking 7 weeks for passports to even be looked at. (its taken some doing to get them to admit the extent of the delays for applications from overseas)
Anyone else having problems at the moment? anyone know of anything that can be done?
I have tried calling, begging.. to no avail..
Please anyone else applying from overseas leave 3 months to allow for postage and processing! or better still do it when you get back to the UK :(
any advise would be great
