  • Brexit news latest European Union Bank of America

Mrs May has hailed the move to bring back blue travel documents as an expression of the UK's post-Brexit "sovereignty and independence", although Nicola Sturgeon described it as "insular, inward looking, nonsense".

British passports will change to a blue and gold design after Brexit, Immigration Minister Brandon Lewis has announced.

There are only four strict criteria that entitle a person to the navy blue passport, the Home Office website says: "They must be a refugee or stateless person, have humanitarian protection, a failed asylum application or permission for "indefinite leave to remain".

A new blue British passport will set you back £72.50, which is the same price Brits now pay for the burgundy design.

Nigel Farage was among those celebrating the change, tweeting: "Happy Brexmas!" "We are getting our individuality and national identity back", he wrote.

From October 2019, when the current passport manufacturers' contract expires, those reneweing or applying for a new passport will be issued with the new blue and gold passport.

Others responded with embarrassment at the perceived trivial nature of the change, and concern about what they considered to be the more serious consequences of leaving the EU. "It sums up the tiny mindedness and misinformed thinking of #Brextremists", said a Twitter user with the name MakeBritainNiceAgain.

There is no European Union regulation stating that passports for people living in a country within the bloc have to be a certain colour.

- James Caan CBE (@jamescaan) December 22, 2017Yeah it only cost us 40 billions and travel and relocation restrictions, bargain.

Britain is set to leave the European Union in March 2019.

And the blue passports could be made in Germany, not Britain, as three companies are bidding for the contract, and under EU competition rules, you can't discriminate against a European film.

Conservative lawmaker Anna Soubry, an opponent of Brexit in Britain's ruling party, tweeted: "Stand by for street parties as blue passports return".

Meanwhile, those against the departure have slammed May for pursuing a "hard Brexit", which would end freedom of movement between the United Kingdom and the EU, halt London's membership of the single market, and see its withdrawal from the customs union.

There have been a number of European Union regulations over the years dealing with passport uniformity.
