Riga, March 20, 2018 – The Department of State recently announced an increase to the passport execution fee for American citizens. The passport execution fee will increase to $35 starting on April 2, 2018. This rule increases the fee $10 from the previous $25 fee. The $10 execution fee increase only applies to U.S. passport applicants using the DS-11 form, such as first-time applicants over 16, children under 16, and applicants who re-apply after reporting their previous passport lost or stolen. The $10 fee increase does not apply to adults eligible to renew their passport by mail using the DS-82 form. Passport execution involves the submission of a passport application in person to a passport acceptance agent, including U.S. embassies and consulates, for identity verification and document review.
There are no other changes to fees for consular services at this time. Fee information also can be found on the Bureau of Consular Affairs website, travel.state.gov, and on the websites of the U.S. Embassy in Riga at https://lv.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/passports/
