Getting a passport is getting more expensive. Beginning Monday, April 2, the passport acceptance fee will rise from $25 to $35, said Dawn M. Crouse, Douglas County recorder and registrar of titles. Her office at 305 Eighth Ave. W. in Alexandria takes passport applications.

The acceptance fee applies to first-time passport books and passport cards. It is on top of the $110 application fee for adult passport books plus $10 for passport pictures if taken there.
