Sydney Passport Office has seen long queues develop ahead of opening time, with many having received no updates on their applications and unable to contact the office on the phone.

Andrew Barron told 9news.com.au he was planning to travel to the United Kingdom with his son next week to meet up with his wife and family, who were already in England.
