Applicants will be required to shell out $100 for receiving report of birth overseas, $82 for additional pages of US passport, $450 for renunciation of citizenship of the US, and $50 for every seal for authentication and notaries services. There will be an increase in the surcharge for the US passport book security which will now be $40. 

The fee for the first-time passport books for each adult will go up to US $135 as compared to the earlier fees of US $100. There will be an increase in the renewal passport fee making it to US $110 as compared to the previous fees of $75.
