This US passport fee is increasing in April


WASHINGTON – One of the fees for a United States passport will increase beginning in April, according to the State Department.

The passport execution fee will increase to $35 on April 2. That is the fee that people are charged for submitting their passport application at places like a post office, library or clerks of court, where they are reviewed and verified.

The $10 increase does not apply to adult passport renewals via the mail using the DS-82 form.

The execution fee is in addition to the standard application fee, which runs between $15 and $110 depending on the applicant’s circumstances.
