The United States has temporarily suspended passport renewal appointments for all passport holders until the government can get a replacement.
Passport holders who apply for renewal are asked to submit a $2,500 application fee, pay a $50 security deposit and submit a fingerprint and face-scanning scan to verify the passport holder is who they say they are.
The United Kingdom has also temporarily suspended renewal appointments until they get a new passport, though officials there said they expect to be able to get replacements in the near future.
The U.S. has also banned the issuance of passports that include pictures of any U.K. official.
Passports issued under the U.N. convention that ended the war in Iraq are subject to renewal as soon as possible.
