Lost or Stolen Passports

In the event that an adult or child has had their Irish passport lost or stolen, the following documentation is required upon reapplying for a new passport:

  • All of the standard documentation.
  • Your original long-form birth certificate.
  • Your original civil marriage certificate if you've changed your surname by marriage.
  • If these documents are not in English, Irish or French, you must also submit a certified English version of the originals, translated by a registered translator.
  • A certified copy of your photo identification such as your driver's licence, your passport from another country, or your college identification card. The person who witnesses your application form can do this – they should confirm that they have seen the original.
  • An original document showing proof of your name, such as a pay slip, college registration correspondence or social welfare receipt.
  • An original document showing proof of your address, such as a utility bill, bank statement or official correspondence from a public or private sector organisation.
  • If you were born outside Ireland, proof of your Irish citizenship
