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

Birmingham Passport Office List

The Birmingham passport offices are listed below. These are just a few of the Alabama application acceptance facilities where you can submit an application for a new United States passport. Along with form DS-11, other requirements include a recent passport photo, identification document, copy of the ID and proof of U.S. citizenship. Note that many passport offices have limited operating hours and some require an appointment so be sure to call before you make the trip. Appointments can be made over the phone or, in the case of postal offices, online.

Passport applications take between 8 and 11 weeks to process unless you request expedited services. In this case, processing time can be reduced to 5 or 7 weeks. If you have an emergency and need to get a passport faster, you can either schedule an appointment at the nearest processing center which is the New Orleans passport agency. If you are unable to travel to one of these agencies, you can employ 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 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.
