All minor applicants are required to pay a $25 execution fee in addition to the $85 passport fee and the $60 expedition fee. The execution fee, which is also required for first-time adult applicants, covers the costs of executing the passport application, including verifying the applicant's identity, administering the required oath and transmitting the application.

In order to renew a passport at a passport agency, it is necessary to call the National Passport Information Center to schedule an appointment with the regional passport agency or center. As passport agencies are intended to be used only when expedited service is required, some regional agencies require proof of international travel within two weeks, or proof of the need to obtain a foreign visa within four weeks before they can accept the application.

There are 26 regional passport agencies in the United States, as well as one in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
