US boosts passport fees, sets value of citizenship
State Department jacks up passport fees, imposes $450 fee to renounce US citizenship
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' U.S. citizenship is priceless to some, worthless to others. But now the State Department has a dollar figure: U.S. citizenship is worth $450.

That's what it will cost you to renounce it.

New consular fees took effect Thursday. According to the Federal Register, the cost to process a formal renunciation of U.S. citizenship skyrocketed from $0 to $450.

The State Department doesn't say how or why it calculated the cost. Citizenship is free for most Americans.

In addition, the department will now charge $82 ' up from nothing ' to add new pages to your passport, to cover costs.
