Cost Of UK Passport Drops By 35%

Cost Of UK Passport Drops By 35%

It is good news for expats in Spain needing to renew their UK passports, as the British government has decided to lower the cost of renewal by a whooping 35%. This means the current fee of around £127 for a standard 32-page UK adult passport will drop to £83. There will be a £28.50 reduction on children’s passports, bringing the cost down to £53.

According to the Consular Director for Spain, renewal fees are to be slashed due to increased efficiency and lower costs as the application process for new passports is now carried out online. So although closing the passport renewal center at the Madrid British Embassy did not go down too well with all expats, it looks like it did have an upside.

Cheerio, Spain!

The new fees are applicable from April 7th. To apply for a new passport, you need to fill in an online form, make a credit card payment, and print out further application papers which must be sent by post to the passport renewal centre in Belfast. The advised turnaround time is between four and six weeks, and you can apply up to nine months before your current passport runs out.

To renew your passport, visit the Overseas British passport applications page.
