Passport fees for UK citizens overseas reduced

Immigration and Security Minister James Brokenshire has announced that from 7th April 2014, 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 three years by bringing back the processing and issuing of overseas passports to the UK, whilst maintaining the highest levels of security and customer service,” Mr Brokenshire said. “This reduction follows the 2012 decrease in fee by £5 for all UK citizens applying within the UK.”
