Just had a response from CHC London....

Please be advised that due to the volume of correspondence we are currently receiving, incoming documents (including passports) are taking up to 2 or 2.5 months to process

So my advice is, don't rely on a quick turnaround at present time if you are posting!!

Hi

Does not sound good for us as we just sent our passports last Friday. We are not in a hurry but still we never when we may need our passports in case of an emergency. We dont feel OK without a passport for a couple of months.

Im getting worried about this now.
I thought turnaround was about 2-3 weeks.
Im travelling for work at the minute (already 3 weeks in to my 45 days to submit passport before I even get home). Work schedule means that even if I could drop off in person next week, I just wouldnt be able to pick it up 2 weeks later.
So I have to send it in, but we have our summer holiday booked (Canada . US) for 11th August, and there is no way to change that. In addition I travel a lot for work (who dont know im applying for PR in Canada!) - there's no way I can be without a passport for more than a couple of weeks!! 6-7 weeks would be disaster.

Hi Guys

The passports arrived this morning....wow. What a relief? Didn't feel good without any passports for 5 weeks in case of emergency.

Date posted was 11 June via Fedex.
