The Passport Office’s delivery contractor TNT has been struggling to deliver new and renewed passports on time, meaning some holidaymakers might find their plans for a winter break disrupted.

The office has blamed a surge in applications since travel rules were eased for the issues.

TNT have apologised for the ‘inconvenience’ to travellers after receiving hundreds of complaints.

In a statement, the company said: “We are taking additional steps to provide timely delivery by adding additional resources to the operations.”
