Passport Online is not yet available in your region for first time applicants. You must apply using a paper application form.

If you are resident in Canada, Jamica or the Bahamas and do not qualify for or wish to use the online system, you need to use an APS2 application form.

It is available in Irish (APS2G) and in English (APS2E).

APS2 forms are available from these locations:
