Post British passport renewal time frame.

Just renewed mine after it expired in September 2013! I was waiting until I had lost a couple of stone and looked glamorous before renewing it . However, I haven't and I don't but with a planned trip to Europe soon I thought I had better just bite the bullet .

So for anyone about to renew theirs I just thought that I'd give you my timeline.

I posted (couriered) my application form on Friday 19th February, it arrived in Liverpool on Monday 22nd Feb and I received my new passport on Friday 4th March. So a fortnight door-to-door. I think that's really good.

Have to say that the UK gov passport website is really easy to use, no more filling in reams of paper. Also they accepted a photocopy of my NZ passport instead of having to send it off as I would have had to do before .

So 10/10 for the service.

What's the cost now ?

The post service has improved no end. A few years ago it would have
taken longer than that to have gotten out of nz

Adult standard 32 page passport is GBP 83.00. Total to pay including courier is GBP 102.86.

Does state on the website that it can take up to 4 weeks from when it's received. So I'm happy despite being fat and ugly
