If you have apply or renew passport on your to-do list, better put it on your “done” list this week if you want to save money. Starting July 13, new higher passport fees go into effect.
Type of Passport | Old Fee | New Fee
Passport Book – adult | $100.00 | $135.00
Passport Book – minor | $85.00 | $ 105.00
Passport Book Renewal – Adult | $ 75.00 | $110.00
Passport Card – Adult | $45.00 | $55.00
Passport Card – Child | $35.00 | $40.00
The new fees are to pay for things like increased security measures and more than doubling the number of passport facilities. Unfortunately it will mean less coin for delicious authentic churros.
