Passports

We are receiving a large volume of calls and emails from UK passport holders. For the foreseeable future, there are no plans to change the entitlement to Irish passports of those born on the island of Ireland (including Northern Ireland), or those born outside Ireland who have Irish-born parents or grandparents. There is no urgent need for UK passport holders to apply for an Irish passport.
