New Passport and Passport Card Fees

July 7, 2010 on 10:41 am | In passports, things travelers need to know, travel, travel news | Comments Off

As we indicated in our blog several months ago, the Department of State is raising the fees for passports and passport cards. The new fee structure will be in effect on July 13, 2010. For more details, see ThereArePlaces updated pages on passports and passport cards.

The raises are substantial, but the State Department claims they are necessary to cover the costs of issuing passports and providing service to American travelers abroad. For example the fee for those older than sixteen who were applying for a first-time passport was $97 and is now $135. Here is a chart showing the State Department’s new schedule of fees.
