I'm hoping someone can help me. I have already started a topic in the turkey forum (See Link Below), but I guess I need to post in a forum that relates more to the issue I'm currently having.
I'll keep this brief as the full details are in the link below....My kids passports have been delayed due to an issue with countersignatory whom took his time and didn't fill in the forms correctly. The passport has ended up in Peterborough Examination Office. The passport office have advised that due to the countersignatory wasting time in replying,they now are sending me another form to get a different countersignatory to do the forms, but this is wasting valuable time as we need travel to turkey in middle of may 2014.
Someone on this forum said that it's possible to get an appointment and get the passport application processed more quickly at the passport office at a premium price...is that right?
I'm more than happy to pay whatever the costs, but:-
1. Can I ignore the passport office's request and instead arrange an appointment? how quick can i get an appt?
2. What happens to the application that I've already done for the kids and the fees already paid?
3. Would the countersignatory need to attend with me to their office?
4. What is the process if I wanted to do that? i.e. what documents etc
Here is the link to the old topic:-
