Renewal of British Passport

I have just renewed my passport online, documents and expired passport were taken to the UK by a friend and posted on the 21st October with recorded next day delivery. New passport issued on the 27th October and received by me via DHL today, 2nd November, if it hadn't been for the holidays I think it may have been received sooner.

Thats what I call a good service from the Passport Office.

Re: Renewal of British Passport

I did mine online in January and posted all documents from Alanya. After initially being apprehensive I too thought the service was excellent! I was amazed how easy the online form was in comparison to the great big thing you have to wade through if you do it on paper. I wanted to check which name change proof to send as i'd just got married so called the helpline, got through immediately and spoke to a very helpful lady who answered all my questions very quickly and easily.
When my documents and then 2-3 days later my new passport was being delivered the courier service rang to check our exact address and what time i'd be home to receive it. I was very impressed with all aspects of the service.

Re: Renewal of British Passport

Can anyone tell me how much it costs to cargo their passport to the UK please and do you have to use a particular cargo company.

Re: Renewal of British Passport

Admittedly mine was all done from the UK, I was a bit worried that the photo was nothing like the one on passport that expired 2010, but risked it. Sent normal post 28/01/16 received 05/02/16. Extremely impressed, would be nice if other Government departments' were as efficient.

Re: Renewal of British Passport

I sent mine from the PTT with tracking that we followed on the PTT website then when it got to UK on the Royal Mail website. I dont remember the exact cost but I think it was under 20tl. I had quite a few documents in there including my marriage book & old passport. The passport office sent it back by kargo courier and had given the kargo office my telephone number. They called to confirm the address and then dropped off my documents the next day and then my passport 2-3 days later.
