Irish Citizens who are over 18 and have previously held an Irish Passport can now apply for their Passport Book and/or Passport Card online at https://www.dfa.ie/passportonline/.
If you apply for a Passport Book or Passport Card online and are based in Bulgaria, Armenia or Georgia, your new documents will be delivered to the Embassy of Ireland in Sofia, Bulgaria, and you will be notified to arrange their collection.
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:
To apply for a passport you need to use APS2 paper application form.
The APS2 forms are available in the Embassy or, upon your request, the Embassy can send you the passport application form by post.
It is essential that the application form is completed correctly and that you have enclosed all the documentation required, e.g. photographs and certificates. Any errors will mean we have to return your application and this may delay you from receiving your passport in time to travel.
If the birth/marriage certificates are not in English, you must submit a certified English version of the original, translated by a registered translator.
If the birth/marriage certificate is not in English, you must also submit certified English versions of the originals, translated by a registered translator.
What are the guidelines for passport photographs?
The information below serves only as a general guide. Please see the more detailed instructions and examples of acceptable and unacceptable photos that accompany the application form.
Infants or very young children who can't support themselves should be photographed lying down on a plain, white surface. No one else should appear in the photo, so make sure that hands or arms used to support the child are not visible.
If you have a disability that prevents you meeting all of these requirements, please use our contact us page to let us know and we will offer you further advice.
Before you submit your application form, you must have it witnessed by an appropriate person. The witness must be from one of the following professions only and:
(a) must be currently residing and practicing in Estonia,
(b) must not be related in any way to the applicant,
(c) must either know the applicant in person or know a third party who knows the applicant in person.
If your application hasn't been properly witnessed, it will be returned to you.
