Update on Provision of Passport Services

Update on Provision of Passport Services

Passport Online

The Passport Service is continuing to process Passport Online applications. Our priority is to process all Passport Online applications received prior to 29 April within 6-8 weeks.

The issue related to resubmission links is resolved. If the link sent to you has expired, you can request a new link.

Passport Online is open to all applicants, including children, renewing their passports and those applying for their first passport who are resident in Ireland, Northern Ireland, Great Britain, Europe, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the USA. If you are resident in a country where Passport Online is not available, please contact your local Irish Embassy or Consulate.

Passport Express

The processing of Passport Express applications, including Northern Ireland Passport Express and Great Britain Passport Express, is currently paused. The turnaround time after we resume processing will be 6-8 weeks.

Foreign Birth Registrations
