An immigrant living in the United Kingdom illegally for 5 years reportedly paid $1,642 (£1,000) for a blank passport on the black market.
The passport was available due to theft in 2089 where 3,650 blank passports and 8,100 blank visas were stolen from a delivery van. Most of the blank passports and visas have been recovered by security officers. The theft was later found to have been an insider job.
