Irish citizens may apply for a new Irish passport or renew an expiring Irish passport. Any one of the items listed can be used as proof of Irish citizenship:
Four passport photos, two of which must be signed by the witness who should also enter the form number.
Passport Application Form:
Completed, signed and witnessed application form (APS2E): The application must be the original form, (obtained from the Consulate), which Travisa will send to the client and cannot be downloaded from the internet.Who can act as a witness? The person who witnesses your signature and confirms your identity must, without exception, be a member of one of the following professions and must not be related to you. Retired witnesses are not acceptable:
Minors: If the passport application is for a person under 18, the original long-form birth certificate must be submitted with every application, even for a renewal of a previous passport. A copy of ID for the child must also be submitted, e.g. US passport or social security card.
All passports are processed in Dublin. The current processing time is approximately 8-10 weeks for renewal and Irish born applicants, 12-16 weeks for all other first time applicants. If the request is urgent, a flight itinerary can be provided and we can request faster processing.
