Yes, it was the courier himself who phoned to say he was here at the gate.  I tried to ask a neighbour to go down and get it but when they didn't answer their phone I called the courier back and he offered to bring it to the bank tomorrow  :great:

Why don't people phone before leaving their place of work? It would have saved him a trip to Palm Mar.  :017:

True to his word the courier chappie brought my passport to the bank this morning!  I can't believe I received my new passport within two weeks of sending off the old one!!!!  That's amazing!!! :Woot_Emoticon:

I am super-impressed with the turnaround on my new passport!  I did the online renewal application and paid online, then sent off my form and expired passport on 30th June as per my rant post HERE.  Then today, just less than two weeks later, I received a phonecall from somebody purporting to be the courier, standing outside the front gate to my complex in Palm Mar with my new passport in his hand!!!  Of course, I wasn't there, I was at work, so the chap said he'd bring it to the bank for me tomorrow!!  How excellent is that????   :Woot_Emoticon: :Woot_Emoticon: :Woot_Emoticon:

And me too ... application made online on 30 October, then posted on the 31st. Got it back today, just 13 days later!  :clap:
