STATE RIN: 1400-AD71 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Schedule of Fees for Consular Services, Department of State and Overseas Embassies and Consulates--Passport and Documentary Services Fee Changes 

The Department amends the Schedule of Fees for Consular Services (Schedule) for certain passport fees and citizenship services fees. More specifically, the rule amends the passport book application services fee and passport book security surcharge. The Department of State is adjusting these fees in light of the findings of the most recent annual update to the Cost of Service Model to ensure that the fees for consular services better align with the costs of providing those services. The rule also renames the "Administrative Processing of Formal Renunciation of U.S. Citizenship” fee to be called the "Administrative Processing of Request for Certificate of Loss of Nationality” fee, applying the fee to any request for a Certificate of Loss of Nationality whether the individual has relinquished citizenship by taking an oath of renunciation or by voluntarily and intentionally performing another potentially expatriating act specified by statute, 8 U.S.C. 1481.
