The Passport Card is available to all Irish citizens who hold a valid Irish Passport. They are accepted for travel within the European Union and the European Economic Area. Application must be done on-line. In this case the Embassy has no involvement in the application process and your passport card will be posted direct from Ireland.

Emergency Travel Certificates and Temporary Passports

Irish citizens who have lost their passport, or who have had their passport stolen while on holidays in Portugal can request an Emergency Travel Certificate, a single use travel document to allow one trip back to Ireland. Applicants must come in person to the Embassy in Lisbon. Emergency Travel Certificates are not normally issued to Irish citizens resident in Portugal.

In the case of urgent, unanticipated travel due to a genuine emergency, the Embassy may at its discretion issue a Temporary Passport. These are only issued in special circumstances, therefore evidence of the emergency will be required. Temporary Passports have a limited validity. Applicants must submit a full passport application form and applicable supporting documents. Temporary Passports are not normally issued to minors or first time applicants.

In order to apply for either of the above we highly recommend that you call 213 308 200 in advance of coming to the Embassy.

This option is not available to first time adult applicants.
