Isle of Man

Volume 696: debated on Wednesday 14 November 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many passports have been issued to people residing on the Isle of Man in each of the past five years. [HL29]

Isle of Man Passport Office records do not differentiate between those applicants residing on the Isle of Man and those residing in the UK. It is therefore not possible to provide this information.

The number of passports issued by the Isle of Man Passport Office in the past five years is as follows:

2002-03

7,900

2003-04

8,312

2004-05

8,848

2005-06

8,622

2006-07

8,297

2007-08—(to date)

5,681

The majority of these passports would have been issued to applicants residing on the Isle of Man.
