It remains the position that we are not accepting short stay visa applications. However, certain priority/emergency cases will continue to be processed.

Passports and Foreign Birth Registrations:

Online applications are processed by the Passport Service in Ireland. The Passport Service is open for applications but they have paused processing as Ireland is at Level 5 of the National Framework for Living with COVID-19. There will be an update in 6 weeks.   

Passport Online is open to all applicants, including children, renewing their passports and those applying for their first passport who are resident in Ireland, UK, EU, EEA and Switzerland. These will be the first applications processed when we resume processing passports.

To apply via Passport Online click here

Paper passport applications are not currently being accepted.

If you are in Sweden and in need of a passport urgently, please email the Embassy here laying out your situation.

The processing of Foreign Birth Registrations will now pause until Dublin returns to Level 3 on the National Framework for Living with COVID-19. Applications that have been sent to the FBR team have been securely held and will now be processed in strict date order. At present, due to the complex nature of the Foreign Birth Registration it takes between 12 to 18 months to process a completed Foreign Birth Registration application.

Please see the website of the Passport Service for further information. 


Emergency Consular assistance continues to be provided. Please call the Embassy on +46 8 54504040.

When calling, you will be prompted to leave a message. After the tone, record your message stating your name, a brief description of the situation and a contact number. The Duty Officer will call you back.
