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:

If you are resident in Denmark or Iceland, you need to use an APS2 application form.
APS2 forms are available:
If the birth/marriage certificates are not in English, you must submit a certified English version of the original, translated by a registered translator.

We advise against having a Notary public witness the application, as in Denmark the seals which they use are incompatible with scanning the form into our computer system.
Your application form is only valid for six months from the date your witness signs Section 9.
This is an additional requirement for children. Everyone under the age of 18 must have the consent of their parents/guardians to get a passport and this consent must be witnessed.
The only exception to this is if the child is married.
If your passport has been lost, stolen or damaged, you must:
