I'm not surprised if they were forced to start accepting copies instead of originals...it is illegal in some countries to not carry your valid passport with visa at all times, or at the very least be able to produce it on request. Asking for the originals is ridiculous.
Hi all - coming back to this.
Passport up for renewal in May. Knowing that I'm not going to be travelling any time soon and that 9 months won't get added on any risk of waiting to renew until say April?
I applied for child's first passport on 16th November.
Documents marked as received on 6th December.
Not heard back since then
