Changes made to passport application process

As the summer holidays get underway, we are being advised of changes to the passport application process.

Anyone applying for a new one will have to do so through the Passport Express service rather than by ordinary or registered mail - applications made through standard postal service will no longer be processed after June 30.

A new appointment service will also operate at the Passport Office in Molesworth Street in Dublin, geared only at those who have to make an application in person because they are travelling at short notice, or within 3 to 10 working days.

Joe Nugent, Director of Passport Services, says anyone who sends an application through the normal postal system after the end of June will have it sent back to them.
