Appointments are scheduled Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 3:20 p.m.
Note that appointments are made in advance by calling (770) 781-2140. Any remaining time slots in a given day are assigned upon arrival which may cause you to have to wait, or return at a later time or date with a fixed appointment. You may call ahead, of course. This procedural change is required because of increased demand.
School Holidays and School Breaks: please make appointments for these days well in advance because it is quite likely that capacity will be reached and no appointments will be available..

This form of transmission of the expedited passport back to you may be necessary to ensure quick delivery for use on your trip.
