The fee for each year of renewal is 2s.

Passports endorsed as valid for the British Empire are also available for travelling to territory under British protection or mandate, not, however, including Palestine or Transjordan, for which the passport must be specially endorsed, or the Aden Protectorate for which both an endorsement and a visa are required.
