Effective December 27, 2021, the fee for obtaining a U.S. passport will increase by $20. This increase is a result of the passport security surcharge component of the passport application fee changing from $60 to $80.
The Department of State generally sets consular fees at an amount calculated to recover the costs to the U.S. government of providing the consular service. This fee change reflects steady increases in passport security-related costs since the fee was last updated.
