Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

We just recently got ours renewed and they were just popped through out letter box by a white van man deliver. Was surprised given what they can be used for that more care isn't taken to make sure they are going to the stated name.

So applied for my renewal last week and sent the old one back but online application tracking still states "send your old passport". Does this stage take quite a while even if they should have received it a good few days ago or should I get worried?

@MHskier, Did you send them via post office signed for? I sent a renewal that way four weeks ago, and it was about five days after the post office web site showed it as having been delivered before the passport office web site showed them as having been received. And incidentally, nothing's changed since then, it still just shows as "we've received your documents".

@MHskier, As above it took 3 days after tracked delivery for them then to acknowledge receipt of our posted docs on their system, not sure of the exact timescales you are taking about but anything about 5 days after delivery then I would begin to wonder.

@HellsBells, what a massive cockup! rolling eyes Quote from article: "The government itself could face claims from travellers who paid hundreds of pounds for unnecessary rush renewals, because the online advice at gov.uk wrongly asserted that their passports were too old. In addition, firms that wrongly turned passengers away after following inaccurate official advice may seek recompense from the government (my italics). I would very much expect that the firms will do so, if they were following incorrect UK Government advice.
