U.S. citizen passport fees to increase effective July 13

by Kathleen McCoy  |   

If you need to apply for a U.S. passport or extend your current passport, you have less than a week before the fees increase by $35. New passport application and passport renewal fees go into effect on Tuesday, July 13. Visit the U.S. Department of State website at http://www.travel.state.gov/passport/fees/fees_5079.html for information. Links to forms, instructions, processing times and other information can be found on this website.

Three Anchorage post offices -- the downtown (3rd Avenue), Sand Lake, and airport branches -- are acceptance facilities. Routine service is taking 4-6 weeks.

You are welcome to contact Leslie Tuovinen, International Affairs Coordinator, at (907) 786-4135 or anlat@uaa.alaska.edu if you have questions.
