Jersey passport fees reduced

Passport fees in Jersey are coming down on 3 September to £72.50 for an adult (now £77.50) and £46.50 for a child (now £49).

In 2014 the island of Jersey will go over to a centralised passport printing service along the lines of the one now operational in the UK. As the new printing service will offer considerable savings it has been decided to hand these on to Jersey passport holders immediately.

The Jersey passport is similar to the standard United Kingdom passport but technically is not quite the same. Because of the island’s self-governing status the issuing authority is the governor of the island on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen and on the front of the passport are the words European Union, British Islands, Bailiwick of Jersey. The standard British passport has European Union, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland printed on the cover.
