No, we had to wait 3 years. You have some way to go before you obtain my sympathy

E-mail them again and point out how long it has been. Don't be afraid to hassle them up!

Ah, thank you so much AmyDavid, really appreciate your support. I am scared that they are sitting on someones desk under another pile of papers!!

Hi

If they have requested your passports you will be fine, they are more likely to have mislead them. Passports are normally returned within 3 weeks if you have mailed them.

I would keep emailing them until you get an adequate response.

Goodluck.

Mich, by gum you are sangine! Had I been without my passport for 14 weeks I would have short circuited! I have just sent off for a new passport to Paris and have been told to wait 4 weeks and I'm getting antsy two weeks on! What in heavens name would happen if you had an urgent need for the thing? My very best of luck, I think this sounds awful. To wait is one thing, to wait sans passport is quite another. My very best of luck.
