Passport Service suspends operations due to Covid-19

The Passport Service has temporarily paused the processing of routine applications while Ireland remains at Level 5 restrictions.

The Department of Foreign Affairs has said that Passport Service staff "do not have access to private, personal data when working outside of our secure offices and so cannot process passport applications remotely.'' Passport Service staff have been reassigned to other roles for the time being.

However, a same-day service is continuing for emergencies including bereavement, illness or medical treatment overseas. A weekly urgent service is still also being provided for Irish citizens resident overseas who require a passport for local immigration purposes.
