They were fine according to the postmaster. However, last week, I got a letter from the passport office saying my eyes were not properly visible for the passport. According to everybody my eyes were clearly visible - but not to the person in the Passport office! So I went out immediately, had another set of photos taken and send them by special delivery costing £6.15.
It was obviously okay. However, I requested for my old passport, and they forgot to send it back. May be the people in Passport Office (A Government Dept) are short of staff.
