Default passport prices

Just a heads up. I just went to get my passport, even though it is not necessary on the cruise I am on. I just feel at this time, it is safer to have it. The price is going up August 19, 2002. Adults are $60 now, but will be $85. Kids I have heard are going from $40 to $70. May want to get this taken care of if you will be traveling where you need a passport!

Why is it cheaper for kids? Is there less paper work or something? When you buy a kids meal at the restaurant there is less food on the plate so a cheaper price makes perfect sense. However, is there less work involved issuing a passport for a kid?

Regards,
Thomas

Kids' passports are only good for five years.

Thomas,

A kids passport is cheaper because it is only good for 5 years. (Kids can change alotin that time) An adult passport is good for 10 years.
