Call centre wait times

28 April 2022

We apologise to those of you who’ve had difficulty contacting us recently. We want to assure you that fixing this issue is a top priority for us.

Call volumes have increased dramatically over the past six months. 

We now have more staff working in our contact centre than ever before, and we are adding more. Our dedicated call centre staff are doing all they can to assist and we’d be grateful for your continued patience.

While we understand some of our customers prefer to speak to a person to have their questions answered, in most cases our website will have the information you require.  The majority of the phone queries we get can be easily resolved by going to our general advice on passport applications, which provides answers to the most common questions raised.
