Following reports of delays to passport applications, ITV News readers have been sharing their experiences on our Facebook page.
Here are a selection of comments from people who say they have been affected:
Applied 6 weeks ago for renewal passport for my son in Thailand. The UK Passport Office charged my credit card 3 weeks ago but still no passport has arrived! Due to travel in 2 weeks!
£76 to simply change my name. I sent mine to them March 22nd and have not got it back.
I applied for my to children and myself for 1st time passports it took almost 4 months to receive them. In the end I had to contact my MP's office who got it sorted for me.
The Home Office has outlined how people who are facing delays to their passport renewal can get it fast-tracked for free.
If you are worried about your passport application not being ready ahead of your holidays, there are a few options available to you.
Photos shown to ITV News appear to reveal the scale of the backlog at the Passport Office, amid staff claims of "blind panic".
