Beginning May 8, 2022, U.S. Embassy Ireland will begin accepting online fee payments for adult U.S. passport renewal applications. Paying online allows you to mail your application to the U.S. Embassy without the need to apply in person. Qualifying adult passport renewal applicants may pay the fee online via U.S. or international credit or debit card, electronic funds transfer from a U.S.-based bank account, Amazon Pay, or Pay Pal. Please see our https://ie.usembassy.gov/passport-renewals-by-mail/ to determine if you are eligible for online fee payment. See our FAQ page for more information on this new process.
Please note that the online fee option is limited to U.S. citizens residing in the Republic of Ireland. Online fee payment is currently available for passport book renewals only. If you wish to renew or apply for a passport card, you must make an appointment to apply in person at the Embassy or Consulate nearest you.
Reminder for Dual National U.S. Citizens: U.S. law requires all U.S. citizens, including dual-national citizens, to enter the United States using their U.S. passport. We urge all U.S. citizens to keep their U.S. passports current
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact Embassy Dublin’s operations. While we have resumed all routine American Citizen Services, wait times for services may be longer than normal depending on demand for a given service.
If you require a new passport, a renewal passport, or just aren’t sure, our simple Passport Wizard will assist you in determining your eligibility and gathering the documentation needed to apply.
There is no walk-in service for United States citizens who require a service related to passports, citizenship, or birth registration. These services are by appointment only.
Passport services are not available on weekends, or on Irish or U.S. Holidays.
The processing time for routine passport renewals is 3-4 weeks. If you have immediate travel, please see Emergency Passports for further information.
