The cost to renew a U.S. passport is based on three major factors: the age of the passport holder, the type of renewal and the speed at which a passport is needed. When passport fees go up, the higher fees are announced in advance by the U.S. State Department, Bureau of Consular Affairs.
Costs for Minors
Passport holders younger than 16 are able to renew at a lower rate than adults. As of the time of publication, minors wishing to renew a passport book and card must pay $95, a minor passport book alone costs $80 and a minor passport card only is $15. In addition, all minors must pay a $25 execution fee designed to cover costs of a passport application.
Costs for Adults
Adult passport book and card combined renewals cost $140 as of the time of publication. The passport book only costs $110 for adults, and the card only costs $30. Adults renewing a passport do not have to pay an execution fee, although this is paid at the time of first application.
It is recommended that in most cases, adults residing in the U.S. should renew their passport by mail.
If you are traveling shortly, you can request expedited service for $60, as of the time of publication, in addition to the cost of your renewal. The expedited fee must also be paid for any renewals or applications at a Passport Agency or Center. The goal is for expedited passports to be processed within eight business days, which results in a passport (or rejection letter) being delivered within three weeks.
If your travel is taking place in the next two weeks or if you need a passport to apply for a foreign visa within four weeks, you can schedule an appointment and submit your application at a Passport Agency. Call the National Passport Information Center at 1-877-487-2778.
