Spacey, motul2000 and other London applicants, can you give us an idea of how long the PPR process takes to get the passport back? Have a trip planned for 7 March and would be nice to "land" but may have to wait till next time if it takes too long.
I received PPR e-mail on 27th Jan, sent out my passport on 29th Jan, arrived visa office on 31st Jan. Still waiting my passport return......
The attached letter in my PPR e-mail said failure to communicate with us within 45 days from the date of this letter will result in your application
being refused and the file being closed. You can send your passport by mail or in person. If submit your passport in person, service in only available
on Thursday 2:00~3:00 p.m. You may collect your passport 10 working days(Thursday 2:00~3:00 p.m).
In the unlikely event that if you have not heard from them after send your passport after 30 working days(6 weeks), you may contact them by e-mail.
So if you receive your PPR letter within this week, you may choose to submit your passport in person and collect it 10 working days after rather
than send by mail. Now I don't know when will they return my passport. I got trip on 17th Feb......luckily I have dual nationality. I can use my other passport.
Hope this can help you!!!!
