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

Baton Rouge Passport - Where to Apply for a Passport in Baton Rouge, La.

Only five passport offices exist in Baton Rouge where citizens of the United States can apply for new passports so we have included facilities from nearby cities. Addresses and telephone numbers are provided below. Most passport offices require an appointment. Please call or set one up online before visiting. For a list of acceptance facilities in cities other than Baton Rouge, visit the Louisiana passport office page.

Applications for a new passport (Form DS-11) should be taken to a nearby passport application acceptance facility so that an agent can witness your signature. Applications for other passport services - renewals, name change, corrections, etc. - can be made by mail.

Currently, processing time is estimated to take up to 11 weeks for standard service. Individuals who request and pay for expedited processing at an application acceptance facility can expect to get their passports in 5 to 7 weeks. To get a passport faster, it is necessary to schedule an appointment at the New Olreans passport agency or employ the services of a registered expediter such as Rush My Passport - Online Passport Service.

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 7 and 10 weeks. This timeframe does not include delivery time. Mailing times vary across the country.

Expedited service takes from 4 to 6 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 two types of appointments: Life-of-Death Emergency Service and Urgent Travel Service.

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 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 A.M. to 8 P.M. ET, call 1-877-487-2778 (TDD/TTY:1-888-874-7793) Outside of these hours, call 202-647-4000.

For Urgent Travel Service, you need to call 14 days before your scheduled international travel or 28 days if you also need to secure a foreign visa.

If you need to travel urgently for reasons other than a life-or-death emergency, please call the NPIC at 1-877-487-2778 Mondays through Fridays 8 A.M. to 10 P.M. ET.
