How to Apply for a Passport
Irish citizens who have previously held an Irish Passport can now apply for their Passport Book and/or Card online.
You cannot apply online if you have already submitted a paper application.
If you are resident outside Ireland and do not qualify or wish to use the online system, you need to use an APS2 application form.
