Important Due to Covid-19, processing times for passports are taking longer than normal for both standard and expedited services.

Athens Passport Offices

Athens passport offices are listed below together with several facilities from nearby cities. There are more than 150 Georgia passport offices where residents of the state can submit form DS-11 in order to obtain a U.S. passport. Note that many passport offices have limited operating hours and some require an appointment so be sure to call or schedule one online before you make the trip.

It takes up to 6 weeks to process applications for standard service and up to 3 weeks for expedited service. Faster expediting is possible by scheduling an appointment at the regional agency in Atlanta or employing the services of a registered expediter such as Rush My Passport.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Mailing delays are impacting passport processing. The Department of State's processing times begin when applications are received at a passport agency or center and not when you mail them or apply at a local acceptance facility. Standard service may take between 8 and 11 weeks. This timeframe does not include delivery time. Mailing times vary across the country.

Expedited service takes from 5 to 7 weeks exluding mailing times on the front and back end. Mailing delays may be significant so requesting 1-2-day mailing may greatly help.

Regional passport agencies are offering extremely limited in-person services if you need to travel internationally in the next 5 business days. Those with qualified life-or-death emergencies are prioritized.

Life-or-death emergencies are serious illnesses, injuries, or deaths in your immediate family (parent, legal guardian, child, spouse, sibling, and grandparent) that require you to travel outside the United States within 5 business days.

If you need to travel due to a qualified life-or-death emergency, please call the National Passport Information Center for an appointment:

Mondays through Fridays 8 AM to 5PM, call ET 1-877-487-2778 (TDD/TTY:1-888-874-7793) Outside of these hours, 202-647-4000

You can schedule your appointment up to 2 weeks before your international travel but the date of your appointment must be within 5 business days of your international travel. If you need a foreign visa, the date of your appointment must be within 10 business days of your international travel.
