The online passport service is now open to all applicants of all ages based in the USA- whether renewals or 1st time applicants. Because of this we can no longer accept paper applications at the Consulate. Paper applications received will be returned to applicants. The link to apply online is: Passport Online - Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (dfa.ie) First time applicants should click 'No' in response to the question 'My most recent passport was issued less than 15 years ago'. If you have a query about an online passport application please contact us via webchat at Contact Us - Department of Foreign Affairs (dfa.ie) and clicking on the button for webchat at the bottom of the screen. Webchat is available from 9:30am to 3:30pm Eastern Time, Monday-Friday.
See below for more details.
The Consulate is now operating with an appointment-only system. Please note that passports should now be applied for online. Should you have an emergency situation and feel that you need to come into the Consulate in person, please contact us and our staff will assist with an appointment. Please do not come to the Consulate without contacting us first: the building has strict controls over ingress and you will not be admitted without a pre-arranged appointment.
The quickest way to contact us is generally via the Contact Us form on our website. However, if you are in need of emergency assistance please contact the Consulate by calling +1 212 230 2480 and leaving a message, rather than through this form.
If leaving a message, please remember to leave a number on which you can be contacted (which can accept calls). If you do not leave a message we will not be able to call you back. The answering machine is monitored regularly and a staff member will contact you as soon as possible. The mailbox/Contact Us form is monitored during normal working hours only.
Please stay safe and reach out to us if you need us. For updates check twitter/facebook @IrelandinNY
