Any approvals lately? I'm still waiting from interview in London on the 5th April.
Also, when do people seem to get the email, as it generally seems to be early morning?

Well my email was 5 months later and came in at 9am. I sent my passport off almost 6 weeks ago and still waiting for it to come back

I know I think that’s far too long now and you can’t do anything about it. I have to keep waiting but Tuesday will make 7 weeks since they’ve had my passport ….. something just isn’t right

There must be some huge back log, I remember reading somewhere that someone said that they contacted the embassy to find out what was the hold up.... I'm sure you'll have it back soon.

I'm now waiting 15 weeks from interview. it seems average waiting time is 16/17 weeks from what I can see. The lovely CO said I was looking at 4 months. So hoping magic email will come through soon.

Is this your 1st waiver?

awww yes the average is 4-6 months and I was bang in the middle. I was definitely expecting them to have my passport for up to 21 working days but I’ve gone way passed that. I’m greatful but it’s preventing other travel o need for work as I was going by what they said upon receipt of passport. This is my first yes so I don’t even know what I have been given yet

I was traveling while my L1a visa foil was being put in my passport (now waivers, and only took a week)… if you need to travel for work you had options… I think you need the 1st one as part of the application thought. I went and did mine same day at the Victoria office:

wow I had no idea you could do this and surprised my employer didn’t share this. I think I will have to do this as I’m not confident in it coming anytime soon due to this backlog

I don't understand why it's taking so long to do. I get that there are lots to issue, but man.... 7 weeks and counting!

I know… i wish I knew I could get a 2nd passport. Now I don’t think it’s worth me trying to get another as I have a feeling I’ll be contacted. It’s a long time to have someone’s passport. I have to stop checking the progress as that’s not helping … I’m literally checking multiple times a day. Not doing myself any favours

I don't think it's the issuance, sounds to me like Sewfran is in Admin Processing. Sewfran, what does your online status say?
