RE: Changes in U.S. Passport Processing
DATE: March 1, 2005
This is to advise you that the United States Passport Services Office has announced the implementation of a new fee associated with applications for U. S. passports, effective March 8, 2005:
All applications submitted to the U.S. Passport Office on or after March 8, 2005, must include a new $12 “Security Surcharge,” in addition to all regular fees currently assessed for this service. According to the U.S. Passport Office, “The security surcharge will fund multiple security enhancements in the U.S. passport.”
For detailed fee information to apply for a U.S. passport, please visit the web site of the U.S. Passport Services Office at http://travel.state.gov/passport/passport_1738.html or the web site of the Office of International Services at http://www.temple.edu/ois/documents/passportfees03082005.pdf.
