    I am an EU student and I applied for the Postgraduate Loan in June. I have now received a letter asking me to send my "original valid passport".

    Does that mean they need my actual passport? I understand it will be returned but I will need it to fly to London in September and I don't feel comfortable not knowing when I will get it back. How long do they take to send it back?

    Thank you in advance.

    Hi, yes we require the original actual passport. If you are travelling within the next 6 weeks we advise you not to send it until you get to the UK. Thanks

    I sent my passport with courier service and I spoke with Student Finance on Wednesday they told me they have received it on Monday.
    Now I see on my account there is a tick next to the declaration form I sent with my passport but not on the evidence step which was my passport. There is a new letter to me titled "missing evidence" that says they still need my passport. I tried ringing SFE several times today but they are not answering. I am furious and I am worried. On Wednesday they told me they were checking it and would send it back on Thursday (yesterday) and I should call back for the recorded delivery number. What is going on??

    Hi,

    If you give our team a call on 0300 100 0607, they will be able to see if your passport has been sent back to you.

    Thanks
