U.K. passport renewal
Hello all you lovely people, I’m needing to pick your brains ! I’ve had to send off my passport for renewal from Turkey to the U.K.,it finally arrived yesterday to the passport office , yippee ! Then several newspapers posted this article this morning.


now, has anyone recently done this themselves? How long did it take for your new one to arrive back in Turkey, squeaky bum time for me as I need to renew my residency permit late December/early January

thank you all

I don't know how long it will take to get a UK passport to Turkey but my daughter recently renewed hers in the UK for delivery in the UK.
The application was completed within the week but the delivery by TNT took another 2 weeks with two failed delivery dates.
The firm are useless.

I used Royal mail tracked international , had it in Turkey next day , took PTT two weeks to clear customs and deliver but the uk Post Office tracked it at every juncture , fab by the PO .

From today's newspaper reports the problem appears to be largely delivery within the UK, not abroad. The Passport Office is not using Royal Mail for delivery, they have an exclusive contract with TNT, owned by FedEx. It seems TNT cannot cope. They don't even answer the helpline phone. Some people are so desperate they've been driving round to the TNT depots to look for their new passports. The contract is a 3 year one for £77million.

Ok, after the dreaded news passports taking months my new passport arrived yesterday! Yay! From approval to arrival was 8 days, took them longer to see if it was me and process it! am really surprised.

DHL were the cargo company and kept me updated every step of the way by email, but a long way from the day of popping into the post office and getting a paper passport! Ohhhh that was the day!
