Complete nightmare so far, missed flight and missing foreign visa as well.
Going to IPS tomorrow with a fast-track appointment in hand and aiming to upgrade to the premium one-day service. Anyone had any luck with that approach before - or tips?
EDIT: Thank you. It's for a British passport, the visa is a separate issue I'm working on. Though any tips or tricks on how to get a 1 week-fast track passport replacement appointment upgraded to the 1-day premium service would be helpful.
