The cost of passports issued in Jersey and Guernsey will reduce in line with changes being made in the UK.

A standard 10-year adult passport will cost £72.50, a reduction of £5, and a passport for those aged under 16 will be £46, a drop of £3.

In Guernsey the fast track service will remain at an extra £35, and collective passports, for organised school and youth group trips, will stay at £39.

The changes in Jersey, Guernsey and the UK take effect from 3 September.

In Jersey there is no change to the cost of the express service passport, which will stay at £38.50.

The decreases were introduced following effeciency savings and the move to a central printing facility.

Passports issued in the Bailiwick of Guernsey are issued by the Passport Office on behalf of the Lieutenant Governor as the Queen's representative.

The fees collected are paid to the UK Government as part of the Bailiwick's contribution towards defence and overseas representation.
