There are two separate fees. You will need to pay the fees separately. The State Department doesn’t take credit/debit cards. Only library fees can be paid with credit/debit cards.

To calculate your fees, use this link: https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/passports/requirements/fees.html


Fees Paid to the U.S. Department of State

The application fee is dependent on a number of factors—age, type of passport, and whether you need any additional services.

If you need your passport in a hurry, there could be a fee to expedite the application and/or a delivery fee.

For these fees we accept:

  • Checks (personal, certified, cashier's, traveler's) (payable to "U.S. Department of State")
  • Money orders (payable to "U.S. Department of State")

*Credit and debit cards CANNOT be accepted for Department of State Fees*


Fees Paid to the Saline County Library

The execution fee is $35 and paid separately to the Saline County Library. (Passport renewals do not have an execution fee.) If you need a passport photo, the library can provide one. The cost is $10.

We (the Saline County Library) accept:

  • Money orders (payable to "Saline County Library")
  • Personal checks and cash (payable to "Saline County Library")
