Passport Fees to Increase!

A friend on twitter posted this and I was shocked at the large increase in fees. They go into effect on July 13 so if you need a passport or need to renew NOW is the time!

Here is a summary of fees from this article:

  • Age 16+ New Passport: $135 (was $100)
  • Age 16+ Renewal: $110 (was $75)
  • Adult Passport Card (for land/sea crossing into Canada, Mexico, Caribbean): $55 (was $45)
  • Add more pages to a passport: $82 (was free!)
I am glad I caught this in time. I have a few friends who need to renew and should do it now. Get the word out! Time is money in this case!
