The gov.uk website sets out expected turnaround times for applications made in

the UK and, on a country-by-country basis, for applications made overseas. HM

Passport Office aims to deal with applications within published turnaround

times, but this is a guideline only as there are a number of factors that can

affect how long it takes to process an application.

The premium and fast track service provide a guaranteed turnaround period of

four hours and seven days respectively on payment of an additional fee,

provided the applicant has submitted all the relevant information and the

necessary security requirements are met.
