How to apply for a passport in Atlanta
All passport applications must be submitted in person. There are no exceptions to this rule. You must schedule an appointment. We ask for your understanding that due to limited capacity, we cannot accept applications from citizens who appear without an appointment. Please click on the link below to obtain an appointment throught our online appointment system.
Please note: The use of mobile devices may result in reduced functionality of the appointment system or wrong bookings. We therefore recommend using desktop computers or laptops when making online appointments.
Passport applications requiring a name declaration cannot be processed until the appropriate declaration has been submitted. It is therefore essential that you check whether or not you are required to submit a name declaration. For example, a name declaration is required if you have married since your last passport was issued and you changed your surname. A name declaration is also required if this is the first time you are applying for a passport for your child and you and your spouse do not share the same surname. Additional information can be found on our website about Naming Law.
