Evening everyone,

I've left it a little closer that I'd like as I am suppose to be traveling in January. I just wondered if anyone had done theirs recently and could give me a rough idea how long it took for the new one to arrive.

I'm planning to submit online.

Thanks in advance

    This time of year I'd expect it to be ok - I know there is a slight burst of applications with people looking for xmas/new year getaways, but nothing like the June /july/august delays

    I’ve just done my passport. Applied last Monday online and it arrived today. I spent extra on the pictures to make sure they would be accepted (Tesco as opposed to doing them myself) and paid for 1st class signed for for the old passport. I couldn’t believe it when I received the text message saying it was on its way. The whole process was slick from application to receipt. Good luck!

    My partner did their application online and it came within 3 weeks , that was including sending their old passport and documents through the post , this was about 2 months back the wait might be a bit longer now

    A while back when we did ours, earlier this year,, all arrived within 3 weeks, an error on my sons(at there end) over 10 weeks, they used to have a turnaround time on the website, maybe worth checking out

    Mine took around 3 weeks and had to send my foreign passport too halfway through. Lot of back and forth for mine for some reason.

    My husband did his online 2 weeks ago and the new one arrived in less than a week. He used a photo booth in a supermarket nd sent his photo by digital code.

    I recently paid almost double for a few 7 day passports in September and drove 200 mile round trip to get passports because a friend's had took 3 months when sent off in June.
    My daughter did hers normally online the week before I drove there and had hers back the day after we got ours ( under 2 weeks ) guess i wasted a lot of money

    Mine took 10 days here 3 weeks ago. Used the online application and sent a photo taken on my phone. Paid for just the basic service.

    Applied for my renewal three weeks ago on a Tues. Used Max Spielman photo booth. Sent old one first class Weds and new one arrived on the Tuesday - so was surprised it only took a week. (edited)
