This provision required the Department of State to start collecting this surcharge on January 1, 2015, and it expired five and a half years after the first date on which the surcharge was collected, on June 30, 2020. The Department must reduce the reduced Border Crossing Card fee by $1, for a total fee of $15, to continue to collect the legislatively required fee amount of $13 and all remaining applicable surcharges.
