Public offices

Our Public Offices in Dublin and Cork are closed. This is to allow us to have all our staff work on processing passport applications.

Please do not attend our public offices as you will not be able to speak to a member of staff or to drop off documents.

We do not allow passport collections.

Our Customer Service Hub is the only way to get information about your application.
