There are a lot of steps in finding work in Japan. Applying for your U.S. passport is one of them.
Do yourself a favor and don’t wait until the last minute to apply for one. It usually takes 4 to 6 weeks so it’s one of the first things you need to knockoff your “to do” list.
U.S. Passport Fees
In addition to paying a $55 application fee and a $12 surcharge fee, you'll also need to cough up another $30 for an execution fee. The grand total is $97 - these are fees for those 16 or older.
If you’re applying for the first time you need to appear in person. You can get your passport in 2 weeks flat by paying an additional $60 for their expedite service.
Here’s what you need to do to get a U.S. passport:
1. Fill out your passport application.
U.S. Passport Application link.
2. Have 2 passport size (2”X 2”) photos taken. Your local Kinko’s can fix you up. Make sure the photos you use for your passport are recent.
Keep your passport on you while you travel. Don’t pack it in a bag you’ll check.
Make a couple copies of the first 2 pages of your passport and keep one in your carry-on and the other in your wallet or purse. That way, if you lose it the U.S. Consulate can replace it within one business day.
