Hi all,

I have just become an English citizen. Very excited about it. I want to apply for the British passport but it may clash with my travel plans. On the official government web site it says that adults applying for the first time should allow 6 weeks.

Can someone advise on realistic waiting time?
I think government guidelines sometimes overestimate. Anyone had a similar application recently? I would be interested to hear how long it actually took.


Thanks a lot,
Ivana

British passport processing time

A quick update on the my personal experience of processing times for the passport.

I had to send my NZ passport for the application processing. The whole application took almost 5 weeks, but I got my NZ passport back after about 14 days.
The longest time in the process is waiting for an Interview, but by then I already had my NZ passport back.

Cheers,
I.
