As fee amounts and exchange rates change periodically, please check this webpage just before you obtain your payment method to make sure you have the correct fee amount at the time you apply.

IMPORTANT: Please submit the exact fee amount. There is no expedite fee for U.S. passport applications in the United Kingdom. Therefore please disregard any fee amounts or expedite fees stated on the application form you completed as that information is not relevant for applicants outside the United States.

If you submit a type of payment that cannot be accepted for your service, or if the amount is incorrect, your application will be delayed.
