International Postal restrictions

During COVID 19, the Passport Service are working with An Post to deliver Passport Online.

An Post are continuing normal deliveries in Ireland, Northern Ireland, Great Britain and most of the European Union.

There are some international restrictions due to COVID 19. Information on An Post’s international postal services are available here: https://www.anpost.com/Covid-19

Where there is no An Post International service available, we are working to deliver Passport Online through our network of Embassies and Consulates. If you have pre-paid for delivery (€15), there will be no further charge.

If you need an update on your application, please contact our Customer Service Hub.

Passport Express

The processing of Passport Express applications will recommence on 4 August 2020 in Ireland and Northern Ireland. The turnaround time for processing paper based applications will be 6-8 weeks.

Foreign Birth Registrations

The FBR Section has now resumed the processing of applications.

Applications that have been sent to the FBR team have been securely held and will now be processed in strict date order. At present, due to the complex nature of the Foreign Birth Registration it takes between 12 to 18 months to process a completed Foreign Birth Registration application.

Contact us

Our phone lines will be open from Thursday 11th June.  If you need a passport for travel in an emergency (death or serious illness of a family member or for emergency medical treatment of the applicant), please contact us through our WebChat service.

For the most up to date travel advice please check: dfa.ie/travel/travel-advice. If you are abroad, you should contact your local Irish Embassy or Consulate. They can advise you about your option for travel.

We advise citizens to follow HSE guidelines on restricting movements.
