Passport Fees

Please note that USD fees for passports are regularly updated to keep in line with the Euro fees charged by the Passport Office in Ireland. Please also note that from 11th April 2011, fees also apply to persons aged 65 and over.

Type Eligibility Fee (in USD)
Standard 10 Year Available only to those aged 18 years and older $120
Large 10 Year Available on request to very frequent travellers aged 18 years and older $161
Standard 5 Year Issued to minors (under 18) $65
Emergency Travel Document (ETC) Only intended for people who have lost their passport, or who have had their passport stolen, and must urgently travel to Ireland $35

Additional fees apply for emergency travel documents issued outside normal hours of opening.

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


The Consulate accepts payments for passports in the form of money orders or certified bank checks/drafts.

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