Default Medicals on FRIDAY - water damaged passport....

Hi all,

Cat knocked a pint of water over my husband's passport. The photo page is undamaged, however all the other 'paper' pages are wrinkled and crispy!

We have our medicals on Friday, and soon after (we hope) the PPR will come through. What do you think we should do about the PP?

Thanks !

Hi
we received our PPR about 7 week after our medicals were done
hope gives you some sort of time frame and helps you decide if you want to order a new UK passport, I would as you don't really want to change once your visa has been put in it or have any problems on your 'landing'
with a damaged passport

regards

Hi
I think you should use it for the medical if they need to see it....then send it off straight away for a replacement. Having worked for the passport service, water damaged passports may be rejected at any destination when they are unable to put any visa stamps on the damaged pages. You also do not want to have shiny new visas in a damaged passport......if CHC will put them in it at all.

I recently renewed mine and it was back within two weeks, as this is not the busy time in the Passport Offices. The post office (main) and the passport offices are the only places you can get the new form.

And 'SHOOT THE CAT'.......only joking

Hi,

We renewed all four passports last year and all individually for different reasons and they all came back within 8-14 days. We also paid for them to be checked at the PO counter and I think that speeds the process up too.
Hope this helps you to decide

Hi
The Post office checking service is a waste of money, and having been a passport examiner for 5 years, there were more mistakes found on those 'checked' applications than on the ones you did yourself.

It does not guarantee a faster processing time, because if an error is found that they have not picked up on...a letter gets sent to applicant and it gets pigeon holed until it is right. Just like if you had sent it in yourself.....but of course with the extra charge for the priviledge. Do it yourself, it is expensive enough without adding extra. I renewed for myself and 2 boys and it cost £175.
Hope this helps
Stef
