Applying for a Passport

Irish Citizens who are over 18, and have previously held an Irish Passport can now apply for their Passport and/or Passport Card online at https://www.dfa.ie/passportonline.

If you are not eligible, or do not wish, to apply online, our How to Apply for a Passport Guide takes you through each step of your Irish Passport application. The guide will answer some of the most common questions like:

  • what form you need and where to get one
  • documents you need to include
  • photograph requirements
  • witnessing an application form
  • how to submit it
  • passport fees

Remember...

Read all sections of the passport application form to make sure you've filled it out correctly, including photo requirements and how to get it witnessed properly.

Application Forms

If you are resident in Austria, you need to use an APS2E application form, which can be obtained by contacting the Embassy of Ireland in Vienna.
