Posted

Effective Dec. 27, 2021, the U.S. State Department has raised the price for first time applicants and renewal of U.S. passport books. Security surcharges for passport books will increase by $20, as well.

The new fees are as follows, payable by check or money order to the U.S. Department of State:
• New passport age 16 and over: $130
• Passport under 16: $100
• Renewal adult passport: $130

New passports and passports for minors under the age of 16 are also subject to a processing fee of $35 per passport, payable by cash, debit or credit card, or check payable to Jerald D. Bryant, Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller.

These fees apply to all applications received Dec. 27, 2021, or after.

Other service charges for expedited processing, or rush delivery, which are additional fees, remain unchanged.
