New Passport Office in Atlanta
" Good news if you live in Atlanta and need a passport. Now you can get one without leaving the city. In the past one would have to travel to Washington, DC. or Miami to get a passport. Today the State Department officially opened an office in Atlanta to handle passport books that can be issued on site either the same day or the following day. A visit to the new office will cost you, though. An additional “expedite fee” of  $60 is required. Appointments are   also necessary. The new office is located at 230 Peachtree Street NW. The State Department says changes to travel document requirements over the past few years demonstrated the need to expand the passport network into previously underserved areas. In the last year, the Department of State has opened four new passport agencies and added public counters at two existing agencies. The Department’s 28th  domestic passport facility, Atlanta is expected to issue 50,000 passports in its first year.  Customers may also obtain additional visa pages on an expedited basis.   Appointments can be scheduled by calling 1-877-487-2778 or  TDD/TTY: 1-888-874-7793.
