How long does it take to get first British passport


New Member

So I'm British by birth. I have 3 kids who were also born there..British by birth. I moved out of the UK and to Pakistan and now have had my 4th child. We have applied for his first British passport so that we can visit the uk in the summer for holidays.

The hmpo site says up to 31 weeks, but it said 15 weeks for my renewal which I received in 4 weeks. So am.hoping I get the first passport application done sooner too. Any ideas from personal experience? Is it true the less complicates the application the quicker it is?

Thanks in advance.
