I hope that this message finds you well. As your Thirteenth Congressional District Representative, I want to share some important updates with you from the past month:

A Note About Passport Cases


Congressman Scott's office has been diligently working to assist constituents with passport inquiries directed to both the Department of State and the Atlanta Passport Office.


As of June, we have successfully navigated hundreds of cases. However, as the travel season is in full swing, we would like to share some essential information to better prepare constituents for their planned and potential future travel.

Important Passport Tips:

  • Apply early & keep documents up to date to avoid stress and cancellations. Some countries require passports valid for 6 months post-departure.
  • Book your trip after receiving your passport to prevent travel payment stress.
  • Routine passports take up to 13 weeks; expedited up to 9 weeks. Check processing times at the Department of State's website.
  • Ensure you have all necessary documents to avoid delays when applying.
  • Appointments aren't guaranteed due to high demand. Call 1-877-487-2778 for appointment availability updates.

Highlighting Commemorations in June

National Gun Violence Awareness Month (June 2023): "During National Gun Violence Awareness Month, let's unite to end the devastating impact of gun violence. Together, we can create safer communities and protect lives. It's time to take decisive measures to end gun violence," Congressman Scott wrote.

Juneteenth (June 19, 2023): "Today, we observe Juneteenth, a celebration of America’s second Independence Day. As we reflect on the legacy of the last American slaves freed from bondage, let us reaffirm our commitment to freedom and justice for all," stated Congressman Scott.

Pride Month (June 2023): "Happy Pride to the LGBTQI+ community in #GA13 and across the country!" Congressman David Scott stated.

Men's Health Month (June 2023): "June is #MensHealthMonth, a time to raise awareness about the health issues affecting men and boys. Let's continue working to foster open conversations about mental health and emphasize the importance of preventive care," Congressman Scott shared.
