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

Columbus Passport Offices

Citizens of the United States who live in or near Columbus, Georgia can submit applications for new passports at the locations listed below. The majority of passport offices require an appointment. Please call or schedule an appointment online before you visit.

Applicants can request either standard processing (8-11 weeks) or expedited service (5-7 weeks) at any of the Georgia passport offices. Faster service is possible at the Atlanta Passport Agency. An appointment is required.

Those who cannot personally visit the regional agency can employ the services of a registered expediter such as Rush My Passport in order to get passports as quickly as the same day.

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.
