I propose to take Questions Nos. 493 and 494 together.

With regard to the specific Passport Express applications about which the Deputy has enquired, the Passport Service has attempted to make contact with the applicants to provide an update on the status of the passport applications. 

The current turnaround time for processing Passport Express applications which have been completed correctly is 8 weeks. Applicants who require a passport for travel in an emergency such as urgent medical treatment or the death of a family member overseas can contact the Passport Service Customer Service Hub at 01 671 1633 or through the Webchat on my Department's website www.dfa.ie/passports.

Question No. 494 answered with Question No. 493.
