I propose to take Questions Nos. 215, 219, 220, 221 and 224 together.

With regard to the specific applications about which the Deputies have enquired, the Passport Service has provided updates on the status of the passport applications to the applicants.

The current turnaround times are 10 working days for Simple Adult renewals, 15 working days for Complex renewals, 40 working days for First Time Applications on Passport Online and 8 weeks for Passport Express for applications which have been completed correctly.
