A typical EU pet passport photo costs around £15 for 6 pictures. For an US dog passport, the price can range from $145 up to $575. This depends on the vet fee, pet species, point and destination of travel, and others. Unfortunately, it is hard to determine the exact day you can get your dog and cat passport.
