Passport Fee Increase

The Home Office is planning to increase passport fees this year, with postal costing more than online applications.

Currently, a standard adult passport or renewal costs £72.50 regardless of how the application is made.

The fee will rise to £75.50 for online applications and £85 for postal applications.

Charges for children’s passports will go up from £46 currently to £49 online and £58.50 in the post.

The changes are underpinned by new fee-setting powers given to HM Passport Office under the Immigration Act 2016 to give it the resources it needs to process six million applications a year.

The changes have been earmarked to come into effect in just a few weeks.

If they are signed off by Parliament, they will come into force on March 27.
