British passport fees reduced by 35% from 7 April

British passport fees reduced by 35% from 7 April

From 7 April the passport fee for customers applying for a UK passport from overseas will be coming down to £83 for adults and £53 for children. All overseas passports are now issued in UK. The savings made as a result of the repatriation of passport processing service have resulted in a 35% cut in the passport fee.

UK Immigration and Security Minister, James Brokenshire, says Her Majesty’s Passport Office is committed to delivering better value for money for our customers.

“I am pleased to announce that from 7 April the passport fee for customers applying for a UK passport overseas will be reduced by £45 for adults and £28.50 for children “

The new fees are as follows:
Adult 32 page passport £83.00
Child 32 page passport £53.00
Jumbo 48 page passport £91.00 (Child and Adult)

This reduction comes as a result of efficiency savings made over the last 3 years by taking back the processing and issuing of overseas passports to the UK while still maintaining the highest levels of security and customer service.
