Does it really take 4 weeks to get a new British passport in Taiwan?


I will be posting my application for a passport renewal tomorrow. According to the UK government site, it takes up to 4 weeks from the day they receive the application until you get your new passport. From those who have experience, does it really take this long or do they say this to cover themselves?

You can get a new passport on the same day in the UK, so I struggle to believe it takes 4 weeks here.


Well mine took a week from the time it was posted to the return delivery by DHL. However I guess they are covering themselves for busy times, or complications.


Thanks, just sent mine by EMS at the post office, cost $390 and it should take 4-5 days to arrive.
