Passport Renewal

Fees can be paid only by check, money order, or cashier’s check. There are two fees required for each passport: one to the U.S. Department of State and the second to the Dover Public Library. Dover Public Library collects a $35 Execution fee for each passport. See the Department of State website for current Department of State fees.
