Passport Prices Increase

Beginning April 2018, purchasing a passport will cost you more. As a result of the Final Rule passed by the Department of State, passport execution fees for both adults and children will increase by $10. The fee, which was formerly $25, is now $35. This brings adult passport books up to $145 (previously $135) and child passport books up to $115 (previously $105). However, individuals renewing their passports via mail will not see this increase.

This increase comes as a Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs study and a similar U.S. Postal Service study reveal the current $25 fee is not sufficient to cover the cost of processing a passport. Passport books costs also include an application fee which the Department of State did not alter with this Final Rule.
