The DOS has proposed increasing its fees for the various passport and visa services that it offers. The DOS stated that it is adjusting these fees in light of an independent study that indicated that the current fees are not fully covering the costs to provide requested passport and visa services. Therefore, the DOS stated that it is adjusting the fees to ensure that they reflect the cost of providing the services. The following is a list of the proposed increases for these various services.
This proposal is subject to a 30-day comment period. After the comment period, it is assumed that the DOS will finalize the increase later this year.
