U.S. is Raising Cost of Passports

If you are planning on any international travel over the next 10 years and need a passport, now is the time to get it.

Starting on July 13, the price for a US passport will go up about 30 percent for adults, and 20 percent for children. The US Department of State says the higher fees are to cover the increasing costs of producing passports.
The price for an adult passport, which is now $100, will increase to $135. For children under 16, the price will go from $85 now to $105. The prices of visas and other consular services will also increase.
