Cool. I think mine expires next year (need to check).

I'm happy with anything that saves me money!

Still a bit more than applying locally plus you have to tack on the courier fees. As a cynic who thought it wouldn't go down at all, it is an step in the right direction.

Good news, plus this: Additionally, you can now apply online for your passport and track your application if you pay by credit card.

Just too late for me.

I held out as long as I could hoping for the price to come down or a trip home to be feasible but no luck.

Bit too late for me, I'm afraid, but something from the government getting cheaper? Surely some civil servant ticked the wrong box on something or other!
