XIII. TARIFF OF UNITED STATES CONSULAR FEES 

[Revised to take effect November 1, 1906, as amended by act of Congress approved June 4, 1920, and the Executive orders of 

June 28, 1926, March 17, 1927, and August 8, 1927] 

Tariff of fees prescribed by order of the President to be charged by consular officers of the 
United States. All consular charges must be in strict accordance with this tariff and be collected 
in gold or its equivalent. No fee or compensation will be collected for any service not covered 
by this tariff. 

The fees in this tariff are not prescribed for American vessels and seamen, because they are 
exempted by law from the payment of consular fees. Consular agents will make the fees in this 
tariff a basis of collection from the Treasury for services to such vessels. Foreign-built vessels, 
unregistered, owned by American citizens, and vessels documented under the laws of the Philip- 
pine Islands are not exempt from the payment of the fees prescribed herein.
