The Home Office has announced plans to increase the price of passports.
The cost of a child's passport is set to rise by almost 30% from £46 to £58.50.
While adult passport prices will increase from £72.50 to £85, according to MirrorOnline.
The Home Office says it wants to shift the cost of passport services onto travellers to make it less of a burden on taxpayers.
The changes, which apply to postal applications, will come into effect on March 27 this year if approved by Parliament.
The Home Office says the hike is nothing to do with bringing back blue passports once we quit the European Union.
The cost of online applications will go up in line with inflation to £75.50 for adults and £49 for children.
The Home Office announcement said the price rises were part of a £100million border security and infrastructure investment.
Immigration Minister Caroline Nokes said: "The passport is an invaluable document that allows millions of British people to travel around the world for business and pleasure.
"Our priority is to ensure that UK travellers have a secure, effective, and efficient service from the point of application to the time they pass through the UK border and it is only right that we should look at this whole process when setting our fees.
"These proposals will ensure that those people who don’t travel abroad are not footing the bill for those who do."
