    Passport renewal 13th Sep 17 at 8:42 PM
    Has anyone recently renewed their passport, just wondering how long it takes and did you need to send in your old passport

    I didn't see the other thread either...

    Renewed mine about a month ago using the online application, posted old passport off same day and new one turned up 6 days later. Old one returned a couple of days later.
