For most passport services, payment is made on the day of the appointment, at the Embassy. The fee can be paid in cash (in U.S. Dollars or Peruvian Nuevos Soles), or with a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, or Diners Club). Local debit cards, personal checks, money orders or banker’s drafts are not accepted.
For adult passport book renewals by mail (not for passport cards), payment can be made online.
Please note the fee is a non-refundable processing fee and is retained by the Department of State, whether the passport is issued or not.
Regular passport services are by appointment only, except for applicants who qualify for an adult passport book renewal by mail.
