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

Chattanooga Passport - Applying for a Passport in Chattanooga, Tn.

The Chattanooga passport offices listed beloware locations where American citizens can submit an application for a new United States passport. Since there are not many application acceptance facilities in the city of Chatanooga, we have listed others that are located in nearby cities.

These facilities are not processing centers so your passport will not be delivered to you at these locations. The form and supporting documents will be mailed to a processing center. This takes up to 8 weeks for routine service and up to 3 weeks for expedited service. Many acceptance facilities require an appointment so be sure to call before visiting.

Getting a passport faster requires you either schedule an appointment and personally visit the Atlanta Passport Agency or, if you don't have time to do this, employ the assistance of a registered expediting service to help you get a passport in 24-48 hours.

If you need to find a location to apply in a different city, visit the Tennessee passport application acceptance facilities page.

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 18 weeks from the day the application is submitted to the day the passport arrives at your door. This timeframe includes up to 12 weeks of processing and up to 6 weeks for mailing.

Expedited service may take up to 12 weeks -- 6 weeks processing and an additional 6 weeks mailing 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
