U.S. Passport Information
Perry International's standard service charge to assist in obtaining a U.S. Passport is $100 per application, for 7 to 10 business day processing. This does not include government fees or return shipping. If the passport must be processed within 3 to 5 business days our service charge is $150 per passport, and for processing in 1 to 2 business days it is $200 per passport. The U.S. Passport Offices require proof of international travel for any applications submitted through a private company such as Perry International.
Beginning Feb 1st, 2008, a new U.S. Passport Card became available in addition to the traditional U.S. Passport Book. The passport card is NOT valid for any international air travel. It is valid for land and sea crossings only, between the U.S. and Canada, Mexico, Bermuda and the Caribbean. The passport card is cheaper than a passport book, but is limited in use. If you are looking for a procedure with a passport card, please select Passport Card.

- Passport Book Renewal - If the applicant has their most recently issued passport, they were 16 years old or older when the passport was issued, the passport was issued within the last 15 years for a full 10 year validity, and the passport is not mutilated, the renewal procedure may be followed.
