Has anyone had to renew their spouses passport from Turkey recently. I would love to know the cost. Thank you.

My husband got his 1st passport in Jan and it was about 450tl. I can ask him tomorrow how much it was for sure. But I'm sure like here the renew cost is almost the same as a new passport cost.
