Hi

we are due to travel on Saturday but my fiancée cannot find her passport!

We have an appointment at the passport office tomorrow but its says on the guidelines that for lost passports you have to wait a week...

Has anyone known of anybody who has managed to get a replacement the same day?

Thanks

I think you'll be okay...

https://www.gov.uk/get-a-passport-urgently says
"You must book an appointment at a Passport Customer Service Centre if you’re in the UK and need a passport urgently, eg within a month. After the appointment, you can get your passport the same day or within a week."

It then goes on to quote fees including the one for premium 1-day service.

I can't find anything about having to wait a week in the case of lost passports, and since they do offer a 1-day service I can't see why this wouldn't be available as a 1-day.

Good luck.
