Hi,

My partner and I need our passports back (not to travel) while my visa application is in for Discretionary Leave to Remain.

After three weeks, we called and were told they were looking into it but after calling again last week, we have still had no luck.

Is there any way we can receive these back more quickly?

Thanks!

Normally passport (at least the applicant's) is retained while they consider your application, and asking for its return usually results in application being withdrawn. They may allow it for serious, compassionate grounds like having to travel urgently to visit a sick relative or bereavement. So if you have similar grounds, it may be worth asking with a covering letter and evidence.
