    Why does it cost £55.00 to renew a child passport just because they have had it since they’ve had it for 5yrs. I understand to chage photo I.d but why do they have to pay again ? We are a low income family with no income only benefits.

    Thanks RSVP mrs C.lish…

      I agree the costs are too high!! But I understand the need in using new material is required, but should be ‘at cost’ with a very minimal fee. Labour costs to produce the passport? We pay our government very high taxes and therefore should cost us nothing for a passport in reality!!

      Thank you.

    My opinion is the Government need to spend more money on checking who is issuing false
    passport and visas to allow so many people to come into England in the first place. More boarder
    control – like Australia for example.

    In Britain we seem to be paying for everyone and everything, which Countries are helping us??

    Costs for passport too high. Both husband and I pensioners wish to see family abroad etc. Husband is 80 and has to wait for 5 years for a free one – at 85 how many people are still wanting to travel abroad?

    My daughter is 15 if I buy her a child passport now will it last 5 years or will she have to get an adult one and pay again when she is 16?

    myself and wife are both retired and our passports ran out this year. i feel that some sort of discount should aply,as the ability to travel is greatly reduced by our health and age.

    can a 1year passport be supplied as i am not accustomed to flying and would not be wanting
    a 10 year one. this would be a one off flight for me.
