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.
If your trip is not within 2 weeks, but you need your U.S. passport more quickly than the normal processing period of 4 to 6 weeks, you can request expedited service by mail or in person at a passport acceptance facility near you.
In addition to the regular passport application costs, the expedited service will cost an extra $60, plus any delivery costs.
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 can go in person to a passport agency (you must make an appointment by calling the National Passport Information Center). If not, you can mail your documents to the address on Form DS-5504.
If you are behind on your child support payments, you must reach agreements with the appropriate child support agency in each state where you owe more than $2,500 in child support. Your passport application or renewal will be processed once you pay the debt or make an arrangement to do so. Then the denial request is withdrawn by the state.
Note: This process takes approximately two to three weeks and the Department of State only holds denied applications for 90 days. After 90 days, a new passport application and fee payment will be required. Contact the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Child Support Enforcement if you have any questions.
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.
