They ask all applicants to bear with them as they process the many online applications that have been received while their offices have been closed.
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.

You may wish to be aware that the Irish Authorities require anyone coming into Ireland, apart from Northern Ireland, to self-isolate for 14 days. Passengers arriving to Ireland from overseas are obliged to complete a mandatory Public Health Passenger Locator Form and to submit it to the relevant authority at their port of entry. This includes Irish residents. Exemptions are in place for providers of essential supply chain services such as hauliers, pilots and maritime staff. Check the Irish Government Advice Page for full information on these requirements.
You can register your contact details on Citizens’ Registration, which allows us to contact you and ensure that you are aware of, and fully briefed, in the event of an unforeseen crisis while you are overseas.
We look forward to returning to normal services as soon as we can.
