Irish Passport Application

Irish Passport Application from the UK

Please note: The Irish Passport system has now switched to online applications, so the IWHC no longer stocks paper Passport application forms.

Irish Citizens aged over 18, who have held an Irish Passport before can now renew their Irish passports online.

If you lose your Irish passport, if it’s stolen or damaged, you can use Passport Online to report it lost and apply for a renewal.

For more information visit the DFA website

Documentation required for Irish Citizen Passport renewals:

  • Original long form Birth Certificate
  • Original Civil Marriage Certificate
  • Current Photo Identification (e.g. passport or driving licence
  • Proof of name (e.g. utility bill)

  • Witness of Section 9​

Those born abroad to an Irish parent also need to include:

  • Irish born Parent’s original long form Birth Certificate
  • Irish born Parent’s original Civil Marriage Certificate (if applicable)

Tracking Your Irish Passport Application

Once you’ve completed your online passport application, you will receive an 11 digit application number (Passport Application ID). If you enter that here, you’ll see how far along your application is.


Please note: The Irish World Heritage Centre cannot help with applications. This DFA FAQ’s page may prove useful.

If you’re really struggling, Irish Community Care Manchester may be able to help. They offer a drop-in service within the IWHC Manchester on Wednesdays from 12pm to 2pm. Contact them to find out what documents you’ll need to bring.
