Further Information

If you are resident outside of Ireland, you need to use an APS2 application form.

APS2 forms are available from the Embassy, Avenida Julius Nyerere, 3630, Maputo during consular services opening hours.

Applications must be made on an original APS2 application form. This application form is only available at Irish Embassies and Consulates; it is a different form to the form available from the Passport Office in Ireland.

Please read the notes and each section carefully before completing the application form. Application forms which are not correctly completed cannot be processed and this will cause delay.
