Atlanta Passport Agency
U.S. Department of State
For Immediate Release December 18, 2017
January Passport Day on Saturday, January 27
The U.S. Department of State wants you to know that January and February are the best months to apply for or renew your passport. During these months processing times are lower, only 4-6 weeks for routine service and 2-3 weeks for expedite service. Expedite service costs an additional $60.
In FY 2017 the U.S. Department of State issued a record breaking 19.6 million passports and they anticipate those numbers will rise in FY 2018. If you wait to apply for your passport in the peak summer months, it will take longer to get your passport.
The Atlanta Passport Agency is hosting a Passport Day on Saturday, January 27, as part of the U.S. Department of State’s Passport Awareness Campaign. The event on Saturday is a convenient way to apply for children, apply for the first time, or renew your passport. U.S. passport holders who will have less than six months validity on their passports should consider renewing their passports now. Some foreign countries require up to 6 months of validity on your passport to enter.
