How much does a passport cost and how long does it take to get one? What are acceptable payments?

•    You will need a check or money order for the passport fee of $110.00 for an adult passport (16 and older), and $80.00 for a child passport (under 16). 

•    The passport fee payment must be made payable to the U.S. Dept. of State. There will also be an additional processing fee of $35.00 per person. 

•    If you would like us to take your passport photo, it is $15.00 ($10.00 if you are a Veteran). The processing/photo fees can be paid by cash, check, or credit card (note: there will be an additional fee if you pay by credit card). The processing and/or photo fee and the passport fee are two separate payments. 

•    Passports take about 6-8 weeks from the time you submit them until you receive them at home. If you need one quicker, you can expedite your passport. For those fees, please see our fee schedule.
