The Passport Service operates a counter service in both the Dublin (Mount Street) and Cork offices where applicants who need their passport application processed in timeframes shorter than those offered by the Passport Express and the online passport application service can be accommodated. While priority is given to applicants who need their passport issued within these timeframes there are a limited number of appointments for those travelling in more than three weeks. Counter appointments can be booked online at www.passportappointments.ie.

Applications must be compliant with the Passports Act, 2008. Detailed information regarding passport application requirements and the various application channels available can be found on the Passport Service’s website www.DFA.ie/passport.
