Passport fees for first-time applicants and those who reapply after reporting their previous passports lost or stolen will increase next Monday.
The passport execution fee will increase from $25 to $35. The change affects those using the DS-11 form, according to a news release from the U.S. Department of State.
Customers applying with the DS-11 form pay two separate fees: an application fee to the State Department and the execution fee to the Passport Acceptance Facility. Passport Acceptance Facilities such as post offices, clerks of court or libraries are designated to accept passport applications on behalf of the department.
Some acceptance facilities are open nights and weekends and take passport photos on-site. To find a Passport Acceptance Facility, visit iafdb.travel.state.gov.
The $10 fee increase does not apply to adults eligible to renew their passports by mail using the DS-82 form. Renewal customers can mail their applications and supporting documents to the State Department and should not apply at a Passport Acceptance Facility or pay an execution fee.
Visit travel.state.gov/renew for more information on renewing a passport.
The department recommended customers apply for passports at least 10 weeks prior to international travel in the release.
There are also 27 passport agencies where customers can apply for urgent passports if they are traveling internationally within two weeks. Appointments can be made online at PassportAppointment.travel.state.gov, by phone at 877-487-2778 or TTY at 888-874-7793.
