I'm in the process of renewing my passport. From personal experience how quickly did you get your new passport?

When I posted my old passport off (after applying for a new one online) two months ago, the Passport Agency site was showing a waiting time of around 5 weeks and that did indeed turn out to be how long it took for my new passport to arrive.

longish delays are now the norm up to 8 weeks ( I think )
'Typical processing times' are currently being shown as 6 weeks here:

(That's where I got my 5 week estimate from back in September, so that link appears to offer a good guide).

Mrs NJ and I did ours online and they both took eight days to arrive. Did them on a Monday, arrived a week on Tuesday. This was four weeks ago. Our old passports took a little longer to be returned.

I really recommend applying online if you can. We had our photos taken at a photographers. He provided us with a code which you enter when making your application and it links to your photograph. No uploading, nothing. Piece of cake!

i did mine earlier this year and it took around 10 days
Further to NJ's post, many (but not all) photo booths issue a code to enter on your passport application form (rather than needing to upload anything). The one I used in Morrison's did, giving me a strip of four photos, with the code printed above them. It accepted card payments too, so I didn't need to find change for the machine.
