Passport Fees ExplainedIf you need a passport in 2 weeks or less, you can pay for a private expediting service to get the passport for you. While this may be the easier option, it does come at an additional cost.

Accordingly, you will pay the expedited government fees plus the Expeditor/ Courier fees to process your passport quickly and securely. Important to realize, you’ll pay this fee to the expeditor service, plus shipping costs. Also, this service is guaranteed if you are eligible for a US passport.
