    South Korean passport fees are noticed here: http://www.passport.go.kr/issue/commission.php
    As the description, 53,000 KRW (about 47 USD) is required for an ordinary 10-year passport (48-pages). Thanks.

    Hello,
    Please note that the Syrian Law # 18, issued on 9 April 2017 has set the new issue and renewal fees of the regular passport to USD 800.
    This is only for citizens that are renewing while they are out of the home country.
    Sounds ridiculous, but it’s true. I guess this makes it the most expensive worldwide.

    Thanks for making and maintaining this list!

    • 17 April, 2017 at 07:21

      Thank you for your input. I read about this online. $800 is insane! Cheers, Tom

        Hello Tom! Here’s an update: It seems that the law was inaccurate, and probably got amended later.
        Anyway, now USD 800 is the cost for issuing/renewing the Syrian passport in a high priority queue (takes less than 72 hours), and USD 300 for regular issuing/renewal which can take as long as 3 months.

        Cheers

        • 17 May, 2017 at 09:26

          Thanks for the update, very well! Cheers Tom

      I am American and my husband is Syrian and it cost him $200 for a two year renewal of his Syrian Passport at the Syrian embassy in Istanbul in 2015. It is worth noting that as of today they are not renewing any more passports and must buy new ones for $800 when the old ones expire. I do not know how long they will be good for but wouldn’t put it past the regime to keep it at two years.

      It is also worth noting that it is the fourth least powerful passport in the world in spite of the exorbitant cost. There are only a handful of countries that allow Syrian passport holders to enter without acquiring a visa first and they can be costly as well. It cost a Syrian living in Turkey $140 to even apply for a visitors visa to the US. The majority of applications are rejected and the money is not refundable.

      The Assad regime is pure evil and has been sucking the life out of Syrians for decades. Whenever a Syrian in Turkey needs something done at the embassy, even having a document stamped, he must go to an outside bank and deposit money into their account before they will do anything for him.

        Thank you very much for your interesting, first hand insight and experience. Passports and visas are a huge business, especially in countries which solid travel / visa restrictions. Your last part is of course related to foreign money which Syria needs. I wish you all the best. Cheers Tom

    Hi, thank you for your interesting article. I am an italian citizen and I would like to update you regarding italian passport. Although as you said the issuing cost is 42.50 euro, in Italy there is a really ridiculous system concerning the “validity of passport”. If you wanna make use of your passport, every year you have to pay a tax of 40,29 euro. Therefore, when you ask the authority for passport issuing, the total money you pay is already 82,79 euro. Then, every year, you will have to attach a stamp proving you paid the tax (type: “bollo passaporto” on google images to see how it looks like), outbound/inbound will be allowed even without the stamp, but you will be fined by authorities. Therefore this indirect cost brings up the cost of passport to 42,5 euro + 40,29×10 years. 445,40 euro, that is at today’s change 582.50 US dollars.

    As June 2012 regular biometric Turkish passport prices:

    6 months: TRL 143.00 (USD 78.28)
    1 year: TRL 180.10 (USD 98.59)
    2 years: TRL 254.40 (USD 139.27)
    3 years: TRL 334.90 (USD 183.34)
    4 – 10 years: TRL 446.35 (USD 244.36)

    Addition to this Turkish citizens pay TRL 15.00 (USD 8.21) each time they go abroad.

    Other biometric Turkish passports (issued for state officers, etc. and valid up to 10 years) price is TRL 62.50 (USD 34.21)

      Thank you for updating us un the Turkish passport fees.

    The Australian passport costs $233AUD which is over $240 USD for a Standard passport valid for 10 years. This makes it number 2 below Turkey. From the research that I have done Turkey have released also a cheaper passport now valid for 5 years.

    • 2 April, 2012 at 07:11

      Thank you Michael, indeed quite a price for a passport.

    The standard Malaysian passport costs MYR 300 (around USD 100) and has 48 pages (5 years validity). The fees mentioned in the report are for the old 64-pages version which is not longer available. They had a cheaper 32-pages version as well.
    The fees for Singapore are wrong too. It costs SGD 70 (USD 55) for applications made online and SGD 80 (USD 63) for personal applications at the counter. It’s 5 years valid and contains 64 pages. Remaining validity in the old passport will be added to the validity term.

    • 8 March, 2012 at 06:25

      Hi Gil, thx for sharing. Yes the mentioned costs are not always correct. Same for the Thai passport. As Thailand is my 2nd home I know the cost for a normal passport is just 1000 THB (33$) and not as mentioned 62$. The document is normaly delivered within just one week. I was visiting the passport office once with a Thai friend and was impressed about their modern and speedy procedure.

    Hi Tom, the argentinean passport cost u$d 30,delivery by mail in two weeks, but if you wish it in 48Hs it coast a steep u$d 200. Now the validity is ten years.

    • 7 March, 2012 at 19:12

      Hi Max, thanks for another update. By the way can you confirm the 140$ for a Brazilian passport? My last German passport was issued in Thailand (extended version with 48 pages) and cost me unbelivable 260$. But I didn`t had a choice the old passport was not expired but didn`t had any blank pages left. Regards. Tom
