From 1st October 2019 the price for a standard adult or standard child passport will rise by £12.50 to £85 and £58.50 respectively.
This aligns with fees from HM Passport Office in the UK and the other Crown Dependencies.
The Passport Office offers a "Fast Track" service to customers for the processing of passports within eight working days, in certain circumstances. The fee for this service has also not increased since 2009. From 1st October 2019 it will be £142 for a standard adult and £122 for a standard child passport.
The increased fees will reflect those of the UK and will ensure passport applicants contribute towards the cost of passport services
Service provision cost continues to rise with the implementation of new systems, passport security features and the resource implications of British Citizen passport holders using their passports at the borders. Customers issued with Bailiwick of Guernsey variant British passports benefit from identical services such as consular support to that of any other British passport holder.
The States decided in 1987 that it would pay the passport fees collected in the Bailiwick each year to Her Majesty's Government as part of the Bailiwick's contribution towards defence and overseas representation. This continues to be the case and the fees will, therefore, rise in line with those in the United Kingdom.
The Bailiwick of Guernsey variant British passport is issued by the Guernsey Passport Office on behalf of His Excellency the Lieutenant Governor, who exercises the Royal Prerogative.
