The U.S. Postal Service will hold a passport fair Saturday in Fort Wayne.
You should apply for a passport at least eight weeks before departure to avoid any extra costs involved in expediting their application. The U.S. Department of State is reporting four- to six-week processing times for routine passport applications.
It costs $135 total for adults (16 years and older), with a separate payment of $25 to the postal service for its processing fee and $110 paid to the State Department for the passport application fee. For persons under 16, the total cost is $105, which includes $25 to the postal service for the processing fee and $80 to the State Department.
For expedited passport service, add $60 for each application, payable to the State Department. The applicant will also have overnight (Express Mail) delivery costs payable to the Postal Service.
An employee will be available to take photos, which cost $15. The application must be paid with cash or check. Credit or debit cards, cash or checks may be used to cover the cost of photos and the acceptance fee.
