How to Apply for a Passport
Irish citizens who have previously held an Irish Passport must renew their Passport Book or Passport Card using Passport Online.
First Time Applicants must apply using a paper application form through their local Irish Embassy or Consulate General.
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 outside of Ireland 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).
Application forms are available from the Embassy of Ireland in New Delhi or through our Honorary Consulates in Bangalore, Kolkata, Mumbai, Chennai, Nepal or Sri Lanka.
You cannot download the application form.
