     Proposed Amount

    Financial Justification

    The U.S. Department of State implemented an adjustment to the Schedule of Fees for Consular Services of the Department of State's Bureau of Consular Affairs (“Schedule of Fees” or “Schedule”) to raise the execution fee for passport books and cards from $25 to $35. The Department is adjusting this fee in light of the findings of the most recently approved update to the Cost of Service Model to better align the fees for consular services with the costs of providing those services.

    The final rule for the acceptance fee was published in the Federal Register on Wednesday, January 31, 2018.
