They don’t want foreigners to come to the UK, but it seems that they also don’t want UK nationals to visit foreign lands.

No matter what colour passport you have...

And as for those poor souls without internet access...

Pasted from the BBC News app:

 

The price of a British passport is to rise by £12.50 from 27 March for those applying by post.
Currently, an adult's passport costs £72.50 regardless of how you apply for it but under government plans this would rise by 17% up to £85.
The cost of online applications will also go up - but only by £3 to £75.50.
Children's passport applications will also increase by £12.50 (27%) from £46 to £58.50 for anyone under the age of 16, but will be £49 online.
It will be the first time ordering a passport by post will cost more than doing so online.
Despite the price hike, the government maintains it will still cost less than it would have nine years ago due to fees being reduced in 2012.

So passports will cost less than they did nine years ago, why are you getting your knickers in twist?

Perhaps it's the government's way of trying to raise funds to pay for all those extra customs officers and check points and things that we will need if we crash out of the EU.
