Passport prices increase 2018: How much does it cost to renew a British passport? | UK | News
The cost to renew your passport is set to increase today with prices changing according to how you fill out the application.
Fees will rise for both adults and children, after a government proposal was passed by the House of Commons in January.
The price hike is intended to bring a push towards online services, by increasing the cost of postal forms.
Here is everything you need to know about the passport price increase today.
How much does it cost to renew a British passport?
Before the price rise, a standard adult passport or renewal cost £72.50 — regardless of how the application is made.
Now, this fee has risen to £75.50 for online applications — a difference of £2.
And for postal applications, for the prices has soared to £85 — making HM Passport Office an expected extra £50million in 2018-19.
The £12.50 increase for the postal service represents a jump of 17 percent for adults.
And with secure postage costing an extra £9.75, anyone wanting to use that service is set to have to pay £94.75.
Charges for children’s passports have also gone up — increasing from £46 currently to £49 for online applications.
New child’s passports will now also cost £58.50 if you send off for the renewal in the post — a rise of 27 per cent for children.
The cost of the premium service (one day turnaround time) has risen from £128 to £177.
Similarly, it now costs £142 for the one week service whereby this previously cost £103.
In a statement the government said: “The proposals, which remain subject to Parliamentary approval, would mean the money collected through fees will contribute to the cost of processing British passport holders as they travel in and out of the country, shifting the burden for paying for these services away from the taxpayer – millions of whom do not currently hold passports.
“These reforms are part of plans by the Home Office to invest £100 million in border security and infrastructure next year.”
The Home Office says the change is part of “ongoing work to modernise and further strengthen the security of the border”.
The proposals come following the announcement that the UK passport will change colour from burgundy to blue after Britain leaves the European Union.

What is a National Passport?
A passport is a travel document, usually issued by the government of a nation, that certifies the identity and nationality of its holder for the purpose of international travel. A valid Nigerian international passport is a vital piece of document issued to Nigerian citizens intending to travel outside the country.
For new passport applications, Nigeria now offers electronic passports known as e-passports. These passport are in hard copies and not soft copies and is classified as either Standard Nigerian passport or Official e-passport, depending on intended use.
How To Obtain A Valid Nigerian International Passport
The Nigerian International Passport can be obtained in two ways, online or offline. Either ways, they are still the same
Offline International Passport
Usually, this is the most common way that Nigerians are familiar wth. It is also expensive as obtaining your Nigerian passport is done through an agent. I won’t advise that you use this method as the technicalities you would encounter plus the risk of being defrauded is common with applying for a Nigerian passport via an agent.Either ways, you would still have to take your printed documents to the immigration office.

Differnce between 32pages International Passport & 64pages International Passport
There is the 32pages International Passport, and there is the 64pages. The 64-page e-Passport was introduced against the backdrop that Nigerians, especially frequent travellers especially businessmen easily exhausted their 32-page passports. It will also aid the individual travellers the cumbersome problem of having to carry bulky passport booklets.
Although, you almost can’t lay your hands on the 64 pages passport without first presenting your filled up or expired 32pages passport. This is in a bid to make sure that they (immigration officers) remain in business, as the official cost for making a 64pages international passport is what is collected for the 32 pages when you visit the Nigerian Immigration Service office.
