    Update.

    Applied on 7 Feb.

    Sent package on 9 Feb via Speedpost.

    Didn't actually arrive to passport office until 21 Feb.

    Passport office confirmed receipt on 3 March.

    Passport approved yesterday.

    Passport has been dispatched today.

    My experience (appears to have taken a bit longer than previous poster's):

    2nd March - Applied online
    3rd March - Sent documents via DHL
    7th March - Arrived in Newcastle
    25th March - Documents received acknowledged (almost 3 weeks to acknowledge receipt?!)
    4th April - Application Approved
    9th April - Passport Printed
    13th April - Tracked as shipment (passport) picked up by DHL (took them a few days to get around to actually sending the passport?!)
    15th April - Arrived in HK
    19th April - Delivered and signed for (seems it arrived in HK during Good Friday hence the local delay I'm assuming)

    So there you go, 7 weeks from online application to receipt of new non-EU, UK passport as per previous poster's picture.
