Just looking at the fees as my eldest's passport ran out in March and nearly had a heart attack
Fees have gone from 1 April 2007
Adult passport now costs $345.10 ($352.10 inc courier and handling) was $290 inc courier
Under 16 now costs $220.40 ($227.40 inc courier and handling ) was just under $200
Compare this with NZ passports, $150 for an adult and $80 for a child application, much more like it.
If I knew they were going to put the costs up I would have got his passport earlier. It's gone beyond the joke costing this much just to have a British passport, can't wait to be able to apply for our NZ passports next year.
