How Much Does a Passport Cost?

 

Passport prices are relatively straightforward for adults and children. They are set by the government and assume a standard delivery time of up to eight weeks.

For adults (16 or older), a passport book costs $110, whether you are getting a new passport or renewing one. A new passport card costs $30, and a new passport book plus passport card costs $140.

If you are getting a new passport because you have never had one before, then you will need to pay an additional $35 acceptance fee. This acceptance fee is in place, whether you get a passport book, passport card, or both. If you decide to get both a passport book and card at the same time, you will only have to pay the acceptance fee once, which offers a little bit of savings.

For kids, passport costs are a little lower. The government considers a child anyone who is under the age of 16 when it comes to getting a passport. For a child’s passport book, you will need to pay $80 plus a $35 acceptance fee. For a child’s passport card, you will need to pay $15 plus a $35 acceptance fee. To get both a passport book and passport card for a child, you will need to pay $95 plus a $35 acceptance fee.

 

Passport Renewal Costs for Adults

Passport renewal costs are a little different than getting a new passport. For one thing, when you renew a passport, you do not need to pay the acceptance fee again. The shipping times are the same, though, whether you are getting a new passport or renewing an expired or soon-to-be expired one. If you want expedited shipping from USPS, you will need to pay an additional $60 and can expect your passport to be delivered within 15 business days.

The application costs are the same for renewed passport books and cards as they are for new ones. You’ll pay $110 for a renewed passport book, $30 for a renewed passport card, and $140 for both a renewed passport book and passport card.

 

Expedited Delivery Options and Fees

With USPS, you can pay $60 for expedited delivery with an expedited delivery time of 15 business days. In many cases, this still isn’t fast enough, and you may need to spend even more money rearranging travel plans or making other arrangements if your passport does not arrive in time for your departure.
