Does my child need their own passport?

We recommend that you get an individual passport for your child.

We no longer include children on their parents' passports. This is intended to make international travel more secure for children and reduce the risk of kidnapping and child trafficking.

Check before you travel

If your child is included on your Irish passport, we advise you to check with the Embassy of the country to which you’re travelling to make sure they will be allowed to enter the country.
