Fees for renewing or getting a new passport depend on several factors such as if you are just getting a passport card or if you opt for expedited service. The passport application fee and the execution fee are non-refundable. They are collected and retained by law even if a passport is not issued.
The U.S. Department of State's Children's Passport Issuance Alert Program (CPIAP) notifies the parent or guardian of participating children whenever an application for a U.S. Passport is submitted in their name and verify whether the parent(s) approve this passport being issued. You must be the legal parent or guardian of each child under the age of 18 to enroll in the program.
This program does not limit the issuance of a passport, nor does it track or restrict its use.
If you are traveling within two weeks, you will need to make an appointment to replace your passport in person at a regional passport facility or center. You will need to bring proof of travel and forms DS-11 and DS-64.
Note: Once you have reported your passport lost or stolen, it is invalidated by the State Department. It cannot be used if it is found.
The U.S. Department of State cannot tell American citizens whether they may travel to certain countries, but can restrict the use of a U.S. Passport for travel there. In certain countries, you must get permission to enter or engage in certain activities. Contact the National Passport Information Center (or a U.S. Embassy or Consulate if abroad) to find out which agency grants this permission.
