The estimated delivery time is displayed in the order engine when you book your shipment.

How should I track my registered letter courier delivery to the UK?
You will receive a tracking number via email for the envelope you are shipping to the UK. The first tracking update should appear shortly after pick-up, although it may take a few hours depending on the distance from your address to the sorting hub. The tracking feature is always included in the price for sending documents and registered letters to the UK with our Envelope Service.
Can I use any envelope for shipping my passport to the UK?
Yes, you can, but you are strongly advised to use a hard-back or padded bubble envelope for maximum security and protection. Opt for a sturdy, waterproof envelope that is not likely to tear or become damaged when mailing passports to the UK with our Document Service. The envelope should also be thick enough to hide the passport and any other sensitive contents.
