Fast Track one-week and Premium one-day services are available at Regional Passport Offices.

They are only available for certain types of application.

You need to make an appointment to use these services through the Passport Adviceline on 0300 222 0000.

The line is open between 8.00 am and 8.00 pm Monday to Friday and 9.00 am and 5.30 pm on weekends and public holidays.

During busy periods it may not be possible to get an appointment at short notice. You should allow at least two weeks for your appointment date.

Have a nice time (_;)

I sent my sons off on wed 1st sept and recevied it back on wed 8th sept. That was a renewal thou not a new.

I sent my son's off, for his first passport, just normal, not fast tracked or checked and it was back in just over a week, this was a few weeks back.
So hopefully if you have sent it fast tracked then you should be able to get it back sooner.
I think you can phone up and check the progress, the info is in the booklet that came with the application.

Can you not pick it up if it doesn't arrive?

If so you'll have to get there at like 6 in the morning as queues are huge.
