I am tracking my old passport's journey to Liverpool: it should arrive Monday; I will be interested to see how fast it is renewed. Passport Office web site has a facility to follow progress on-line, and they are certainly not slow in sending me information and instructions so far.

Re: UK passport renewal

We received text messages & emails on the progress of ours. Mine was received at 9.14am & approved at 9.22am, then sent for printing & dispatched at 17.18, all on the same day.(23rd October).
My husband's took 2 days. They were slower printing his, although his got back to us quicker, as the post from Durham was quicker than from Glasgow

Re: UK passport renewal

I'm glad someone asked this question about the photo.I went and got some photos done at a local shop and then found out you had to do your own .I got so stressed trying to upload a photo to the laptop that I gave up but what I would like to ask is what documents I need to send ? Its been a long time since I renewed a new passport .I will be changing it to my married name so I will send my marriage book and a birth certificate .Do I need a copy of my kimlik ? Also is it possible to send my daughters at the same time or would I have to do it separately ..Thanks

If it is a UK passport the website should tell you what you need to send. For a simple renewal we didn't have to send anything other than our old passports. We did the application & photos all online.

When you make the application it gives you an address at the end stating where you should send your passport. I had planned to send mine & my husband's together, but noticed that they had to go to different addresses.
I guess they do that to spread the workload

Re: UK passport renewal

When we made our new passport renewal we filled out the form on line with out photos and sent everything with the Ptt and it came back in 19 days. So has the system changed? we made ours 2 years ago.

Go to their Help Page and ask what to do. Don't send anything unless they ask for it.

Photo: you do not have to do your own. But if the local photographer has done it well, you will need to scan the photo and upload it.

Re: UK passport renewal

I left my passport at UPS lateish last Saturday afternoon, it was then in transit Monday and arrived at Liverpool passport office 0930 GMT Wednesday; the following day I received an email from the PO that dox received and due to Covid it should take about 8 weeks. That was the time scale a friend experienced after his new passport arrived a couple of weeks ago. He paid 200 ₺ for PTT 'Express Kargo'; it took 2 weeks to arrive and tracking vanished so thatís why I went UPS but expensive. When dispatched the PO use DHL and it goes via Leipzig and then YurtiÁi Kargo do the delivery to your home.
Btw you need to enclose a photocopy of your Ikamet too in order to prove youíre an expat. Covid i guess being the reason.
Also beware the PO's software: it didnít like my photo even though it was taken professionally by people Iíve used before and with no problems hitherto, my friend had same problem too. All you do is explain that itís a professionally taken photo, and in his case, it was accepted. Fingers xd.
Hope this helps.

Re: UK passport renewal

Its very easy to take your photo on your phone and use that. You just download an app and it gives you a code to enter on the online form so you dont need to scan the photo, only takes couple of minutes.

You did not mention it, so I wonder if you were asked for someone to vouch for who you are? I was ready and waiting, with my person's details at hand, but the question never came.

I also used UPS, for the same reasons, but you have to pay for the peace of mind!

Re: UK passport renewal

Further to my previous post. I have just received my bright, new, shiny Blue Passport this morning. It arrived at my house via DHL at 8.45am. Pretty neat going me thinks, and because of COVID restrictions NO Signature was necessary.
