Stamp Out Passport Profit
A British citizenship application costs a child £1,012. But only £372 of that fee is the administrative cost. In 2017, the UK government profited over £25 million pounds from the 40,357 child citizenship application. The government has been pricing children out of their rights to healthcare, social security, access to education and a passport.
Stamp Out Passport Profit aims to tackle this issue by raising awareness and put pressure on the government to lower the fee. Using the visual language of passport stamping, members of the public were encouraged to design their own posters using large stamps, the posters then folded down into a small passport guide containing more information on the issue and further instructions on how to act. As we collected more signatures, more stamps were added to the board.
