Postage Fees

*Please note postage fees are included in the above amounts and all newly issued passports will be returned via FedEx with an adult signature required.   You MUST provide your full physical mailing address, telephone number and email address for the safe return of your new passport (PO Box not sufficient).

Fees may vary across our network of consulates in the USA – this is due to the different postage/courier fees that may apply.

Incomplete/Incorrect Applications: Please note that all applications received incomplete or incorrect will be returned to the applicant using 1st class US Postal Service.


The Consulate accepts payments for passports in the form of money orders or certified bank checks/drafts only. We regret we cannot accept payments in cash, personal checks, or credit/debit cards.

Money orders or bank cheques should be made payable to the 'Consulate General of Ireland, Boston.' Incomplete cheques will be returned.
