Thanks for all the replies.
Just an update for those who are interested.
Went up Thurs with all the forms needed, flight details, signed pics, expired pp & fee.
In & out in one hour, very efficient. €95.
He couldn't get it in the one day, they said you can only collect it the day b4 you fly, so I will collect it on his behalf Thursday and pray it will be ready..
Has anyone had any problems collecting it the day before??
