Re-opening of Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade public offices on Tuesday 17th October


The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade public offices, including the Passport Service offices in Dublin and Cork, will open as normal on Tuesday 17 October.

Customers who were due to attend for passport appointments on Monday 16th October should do so instead on Tuesday 17th and every effort will be made to accommodate them. Those who already have appointments for Tuesday 17th should attend as scheduled.

The Passport Service will also be in direct contact with affected customers by phone.

We request that customers with routine non-urgent queries contact the Passport Service tomorrow by telephone (Dublin 01 6711633 , Cork Contact Us) or via our Twitter account @PassportIRL. While we will do our utmost to ensure that today's closure does not impact on our delivery targets, we ask that our customers bear with us as there may be some reduced service tomorrow.

We also encourage customers and staff to continue exercising all due caution while travelling tomorrow.
