Our locations and opening hours

Relocation of the Passport Office

The Passport Office in Dublin will move temporarily from its current premises on Molesworth Street to 17-18 Dawson Street, Dublin 2 (former EU Commission and Parliament offices) on 19 October 2015. 

While the move has been carefully planned to minimise disruption to passport services, the availability of public appointments on Friday 16 October, Monday 19 October and Tuesday 20 will be limited. 

The Passport Office will continue to prioritise cases of genuine emergency.  However capacity to process applications requiring same day or less than five working days turnaround will be reduced. 

Applicants are strongly advised to check the renewal dates of their Passports (noting children’s passports renewal dates) and to use the Passport Express service, which will continue to function as normal.  The turnaround for this service continues to be ten working days.
