New passport arrived in Phnom Penh yesterday. Yippee!
March 17th to September 5th. What an efficient service our passport office provides especially as they are still complaining of lack of staff due to Covid !

Congratulations!

May I ask, did VFS call you or email you to advise of the arrival of your passport?

I know someone who got theirs back in under 6 weeks recently, so I am eternally hopeful of getting mine back this month.
If you are eternally hopeful, doesn't that mean you expect to never get it?
Ok, I'll rephrase; I am credulously hopeful of getting it back this month.

Next month it will move to despairing hopeful.

In January it will be upgraded to desperate as I have travel plans in February.

I had to be the bearer of bad news but there is strike action planned in December which will also affect some staff in the UK passport offices. I hope you get yours before that starts

You will get an email from VFS when it's ready for collection.
Yes sir, I can boogie, I can boogie, boogie, boogie all night long.
