Passport - Fastrack Times


I put my passport through the Fastrack Service and have just received a message saying that "Your new passport in now being printed and should arrive in the next few working days..."

Does anyone know how long it takes from receiving this message to it arriving at your door ?

We fly on Sunday so are hoping it arrives by Saturday post

I think you'll be very lucky to get it by Saturday - you'll need the Passport Office to print it almost immediately and then you're in the hands of the Post Office (or Snail Mail).

Sorry to be negative - best of luck.

If it's being returned by Special Delivery make sure you're in to sign for it otherwise it'll go back to the Sorting Office.

When I fast tracked mine four years ago it took five days from handing it over at the Post Office until getting it. It didn't come via special delivery it was a courier and no signature was required.

Whether yours will come in this time I'm not sure, not sure what the current status with the Passport agency is after issues earlier this year.

I'm pretty sure they use a courier company, not the post office, and you arent necessarily asked to sign for it. I wasn't asked to sign for mine for example it was just popped through the letter box though in my case only half way !

Passports are delivered by courier within 24-48 hours of printing.
