    Current Passport Renewal Time?

    Has anyone renewed their passport recently? If so, can you let me know if it was within the 3 week time given as guidance? gov.uk/ren…ort

    With everyone claiming their Irish passports and it still being a popular travel time I'm wondering if things are taking a bit longer.

    Great - thanks Louise. Did you use the Post Office’s Passport Check and Send service?

    Still interested to hear from anyone else with their recent experiences.

    I renewed mine a few months ago with a new photo. Did it independently so didn't use the check and send service. Got it back within a week so very fast turnaround

    I submitted my own photo taken on iphone, it was accepted, sent old passport back Monday afternoon , had new passport Friday morning. No forms to fill or finding someone to countersign photo, took 6 attempts at photo before it was acceptable.

    Renewed recently. Did it myself and had it back within a week.

    If you do it online, last month it took me 2 weeks max

    Was that the photo rejecting automatically online, or manually once they'd received? I've done it online now, it accepted the pic but then the preview that is automated cropped the very top of my head. Pretty sure with the full photo manually it'll be fine.

    I had a few photo's rejected automatically, my last attempt was accepted, I think it will be fine, so much easier isn't it . I sent my old passport signed for 1st class & new one courier delivered for a couple of pounds extra.

    Not sure I'm going to beat the week turnarounds at the moment, but hopefully within two. Applied online Saturday, posted the old one back on Monday First Class Signed For, which didn't arrive until Wednesday.....now in the queue.
