Passport fees too expensive? Do you think that passports cost too much money? Two members of congress from NY have a plan to make passports more affordable. Democrats Brian Higgins and Kathy Hochul represent districts near the US – Canada border where thousands of passport holders travel cross each day.
Their constituents not only want the passport fees to be lower, but they need passports now more than ever before due to the stricter requirements for travelers wishing to cross the US – Canada border.
The plan to lower the cost of passports may carry some weight since both Higgins and Hochul server on the Homeland Security Committee.
An adult passport currently costs $110 + $25 processing fee. The adult passport is good for 10 years. The cost is approximately $13 per year. Proponents think that by lowering the cost of getting a passport more people will apply for passports. Others think that passport fees are already low enough. New technology and security measures have made the cost of producing a US passport rise. By lowering the cost of the passport, the passports would actually cost the US Department of State money.
