Important Due to Covid-19, processing times for passports may take up to 18 weeks for routine service and 12 weeks for expedited processing.

Atlanta Passport Offices

Atlanta passport application acceptance facilities are listed below. Together with the regional agency and private expediters, there are more than a dozen locations where American citizens can submit application forms for new passports and have them adjudicated by an authorized agent. We have included a few offices in nearby cities as well. Most passport offices require an appointment. Please call or schedule an appointment online before you visit one of them. For a list of acceptance facilities in cities other than Atlanta, visit the Georgia passport office page.

Routine processing is estimated to take 4 to 16 weeks. Expedited service takes up to 3 weeks. If you have urgent travel needs, you can request expedited service or make an appointment at the Atlanta passport agency. The agencies attend to travelers in emergency situtations who must travel within 3 business days or within 10 days if a visa is required.

COVID-19 UPDATE: Mailing delays are impacting passport processing. The Department of State's processing times begin when applications are received and not when you mail them. Standard service may take up to 14 weeks from the day the application is submitted to the day the passport arrives at your door. This timeframe includes both processing of the application and delivery time.

Expedited service may take up to 10 weeks from the day an application is submitted to the day a new passport is received. These door-to-door timeframes include both our processing times and mailing times on the front and back end. 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 72 hours. 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 72 hours (3 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

Atlanta Passport Agency

Applications can be submitted at the Atlanta Passport Agency for Americans whose departure date is within 14 days or, even, within 28 days if they also need to acquire entry visas. Evidence of urgent travel is required as is an appointment. This can be set up by calling the automated appointment system at 1-877-487-2778. Lines are often congested so it can take several attempts to get through.

It is important to arrive at the processing center a few minutes prior to your appointment so that you can pass through the security check. Note, however, that arriving late could result in the cancelation of your appointment. Make sure you have the correct form and proper supporting documents so that you can avoid delays in the process. You can get your passport the same day if necessary at the regional agency.

Atlanta Passport Expediting Services

Atlanta passport expediting services are registered with the regional agency of the United States Department of State. Expediters can be authorized to submit passport applications for United States citizens who do not have the time nor desire to do so themselves. They can get their passports processed and delivered the same day in some situations and, more frequently, within 24-48 hours. If you have an emergency and need to obtain your passport quickly, use a passport expediting service.
