Update on Provision of Passport Services
Our public offices will be closed until further notice. While you can still apply for your passport using Passport Online, we cannot guarantee the usual turnaround times.
Do not post passport applications or supporting documents to your local Embassy or Consulate at this time.
Passport Service staff have been redeployed to assist public service delivery during this public health emergency.
Post Offices in Ireland will not be accepting applications made via the Passport Express system during this time. If you have already sent an application, your application is safe and will be processed once we resume services.
Our phones lines are also closed during this time. If you need a passport for travel in a genuine emergency (death or serious illness of a family member or for emergency medical treatment of the applicant), please contact us through our Webchat service https://www.dfa.ie/passports/contact/.
We have stopped processing Foreign Birth Registrations. If you have already sent an application for Foreign Birth Registration, your application is safe and will be processed once we resume services.
For the most up to date travel advice please check: https://www.dfa.ie/travel/travel-advice/. If you are abroad, you should contact your local Irish Embassy or Consulate. They can advise you about your options for travel.
We advise citizens to follow HSE guidelines on restricting movements.
