    Is there any way to speed up the passport application?

    As above. A friend has asked me to go on holiday with them next month (their other friend can't go anymore) but I don't have a passport... Is there any way to speed up the application for a new adult passport so it would arrive before the estimated (but probably optimistic) 6 weeks?

    Don't think so if it's your 1st passport , you have to have an interview aswell these days

    Go on line to the gov.uk/pas…ort site and find out if you can go to the nearest passport office and do it straight away but it will cost your more money.

    I renewed my adult password and got it back in 7 days on just standard service. Fast track and premium services are not available for first passport. In any case call the passport advice line. Click here

    Believe this is correct, but it's not cheap!

    Gave them a ring and they said no can do. Can't even go in and get it done. Dunno if they were talking rubbish but seems like they won't speed it up

    Well you could be lucky and get it back within the 6 weeks but you would need everything perfect in the application, perfect photos, correctly signed by someone on the list they have.

    I guess first time passport holders require strict procedures, maybe they do intensive checks now.

    If you do apply for a passport, update this when you send it and get it back to give others an idea on time frame. Good luck.
