Irish Online Passport Application Service

Irish Online Passport Application Service

Minister for Foreign Affairs Charlie Flanagan said it is hoped that phase two of this online passport service will allow children and first time applicants to avail of it by 2019.

The service said: "If you have already applied through Passport Express or your Irish Embassy/Consulate you can not apply online as this will delay both applications".

A new online application service has been launched for passport renewals.

The service will be accessible through the Department of Foreign Affairs website.

"The launch of the Online Passport Application Service is one of the most significant innovations in customer service that this Department has delivered over the past fifteen years".

"This new and exciting development brings considerable benefits for Irish citizens in terms of turnaround times, convenience and security", he said.

A standard passport book application costs €80, with a large book at €110 and a passport card costing €35.

"The number of applications for Irish passports still continues to surge since..."

Photographs submitted through the new system must meet strict criteria.

There are no geographical restrictions in place and the system allows applicants to apply for renewals from anywhere in the world.

The service has a target turnaround time of 10 working days plus postage wherever in the world the applicant is based.

OPAS - which cost the Irish Government €18.6 million (£16m) to set up - is the latest upgrade in an ongoing modernisation of the service.
