The Isle of Man Passport Office has issued a statement to reassure people that the processing backlog chaos reported in the UK will not affect them.
A spokesperson for the Isle of Man Passport Office said: ‘We would like to reassure our customers that the Isle of Man passport service is unaffected by the current backlog of applications in the UK and there is no backlog here.
‘Standard passport applications have a 20 working days target and we are currently processing them within 15 days. With a continued increase in applications during this busy period we are anticipating processing to be at 20 working days from next week. Our same-day and five-day express services are also available. The advice to the public is, as always, to submit your application in good time.’
