I lost my passport years ago and need to get a replacement, I believe it takes longer than an average renewal.

Has anyone been through this process and how long did it take to receive from sending the forms off

Cheers

Have a look online, but if its urgent see if you can go in person.

I renewed recently - took 4 hours.

The replacement should not take long however they will be more interested in where your lost passport has gone. The law states you are meant to notify them asap, and if it has been stolen you have to report it to the police. Fake and stolen passports are big business and you may find this slows things down.

Dunno if this helps, my other half has just renewed her passport and the whole process was completed within seven days, a far cry from a few years ago.
