It may take up to 6 weeks to obtain your first UK adult passport, although it can take longer in some situations. All other forms of applications, on the other hand, can take no longer than three weeks. Normally, the time it takes to consider an application varies due to several factors, such as the need for additional details or an improperly submitted application. Premium (1 day) and Fast Track (1 week) services allow applicants to obtain their documents in a very short time. When you use Premium Service, you can usually pick up your passport four hours after your appointment.
