I lost my passport and am now applying to get a new one sent through. How long would it take with the check & send service at the post office? I'd need it within 2 weeks?

I think the estimate is a week, it says somewhere on their website though

Maybe I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure check and send doesn't speed up your application at all. They literally just check it for you to make sure you've filled in the right bits and then send it in. If you know how to fill out the form, you can just cut them out and save yourself the fee.

A guideline for passport applications is definitely not a week - it's up to 6. It may be a lot quicker for a simple renewal, but if you need it in 2 weeks I'd go for the 1 week express option. You can find out about it on the official website.

As you've lost it, there may be some complications though. I have no experience with how long they take, but they have to be completely satisfied that it is actually lost and unrecoverable - not that you've just sold it to some for ID fraud purposes etc.

I renewed my passport from a kids one to an adult one. Sent it off on the 30th April and received it on the 9th May.
