Hmmm-i suppose i would be thinking the same as you, i waited 2 weeks for mine but after 2 days i had to send them my passport and my scanner doesnt work so i had to go somewhere and save it to disc etc so i took a week doing that!

I was supprised when people had there's granted the next day!

Did you book online and if so go back and check the status onlne.

p.s Now you've done this-you'll have it i bet!

What way have you applied online or by post . And what website have you used . It might just be the system takes a while

I did it thru them as well, look on the website it must have a contact number, especially for something like that!

As i'm bored-i'll have a look now, he! he!
