Overseas passports applications to be 35% cheaper from 7 April

Applications for renewals of British passports from abroad will be 35% cheaper from next month. James Brokenshire, Immigration and Security Minister, has announced that from 7 April fee for British citizens applying for a UK passport from overseas will be reduced by £45 for adults and £28.50 for children.

This will mean the fees for new passports will be £83.00 for a 32-page adult passport, £53.00 for a 32-page child passport, and £91.00 for a 48-page passport, whether for adult or children. The reduction in price is the result of efficiency savings that have been made over the last three years by bringing back the processing and issuing of overseas passports to the UK.

For future reference, there are links on my Links & Laws page to apply for a new or replacement passport from overseas, but the direct link is HERE. You need to apply and pay online and send your supporting documents direct to the UK. The turnaround time is four to six weeks, and applications are accepted up to nine months before the expiry of your current passport.
