  1. The Facts

    These days nearly everything is done On Line. This, too, has resulted in decreased employment.
    No wonder many hackers have sprouted up. I hope their Website is a secure one.
    Note the cost which is non-refundable. Is this not something? The cost of mailing the passports is the responsibility of the applicants. They must present a prepaid air waybill for the passports to be mailed. Times have changed. Gone are the days when mailing them was free.
    The US government will not be losing. It never operates at a loss especially in these times and of course, through the years, the fees have increased.
    They now come to you instead of traveling overseas to their office. Therefore, this is one the reasons for escalating costs including for materials, etc.

    Good idea!!! It will save some the extra expense of airfare and hotel accommodations.
    This should be done more frequently
