U.S. Passport Fees to Increase Starting April 2, 2018


If you're planning to get a new passport, you may want to get that process started ASAP as passport fees will be increasing at the beginning of April 2018.


Effective April 2, 2018, the passport execution fee will increase from $25 to $35. The $10 increase only applies to U.S. passport applicants using the DS-11 form, such as first-time applicants over 16, children under 16, and applicants who re-apply after reporting their previous passport lost or stolen. The $10 fee increase does not apply to adults eligible to renew their passport by mail using the DS-82 form.


Customers applying with the DS-11 form pay two separate fees: an application fee to the U.S. Department of State and the execution fee to the passport acceptance facility. Passport acceptance facilities -- which include post offices, clerks of court, or public libraries -- are designated to accept passport applications on behalf of the U.S. Department of State. .
