International travel is about to get a little more expensive.
The cost of everything seems to be increasing these days, and your next US passport will soon cost you more money too.
The US State Department recently announced that the fee for a US passport book will increase by $20 for all customers. The price hike took effect on Monday, December 27th.
In a tweet, the State Department explained that “The increased fee is necessary to ensure we continue to produce one of the most secure travel and identity documents in the world.”
So how much will a US passport cost you now? There are several factors that determine the cost of an individual’s passport, including the type of passport desired, how quickly it’s needed, and whether it’s a new document or a passport renewal.
