How to Apply for a Passport
Irish citizens who have previously held an Irish Passport can now apply for their Passport Book and/or Card online.
You cannot apply online if you have already submitted a paper application.
If you are resident outside Ireland and do not qualify or wish to use the online system, you need to use an APS2 application form.
If you are resident in Japan, you need to use an APS2 application form.
APS2 forms are available:
- Renewal applicants applying online do not need a form.
- First time and renewal applicants contact us via this form with your postal address and we will send a form by post.
- At the Embassy of Ireland in Tokyo, Ireland House 5F, 2-10-7 Kojimachi, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo 102-0083
