Important Passport Information

Payment Methods & Details

Unlike at U.S. domestic passport agencies, there is no expedited processing for U.S. passport applications at U.S. Embassies overseas.  Please DO NOT send in an expedited fee.  It is essential that you apply for a U.S. passport well in advance of your scheduled travel; current processing time for a U.S. passport is approximately 3-4 weeks once we have all required documents.

Passport fees from December 27, 2021 – All mail-in fees must be submitted in EURO

All mail-in renewals must be paid by Postal Order or Bankers Draft in the exact Euro value only made payable to the “U.S. Embassy Dublin”.  If applying for both book and card payment can be made with one Postal Order or Bank Draft in the correct fee amount.

Special Notes:

  • If an applicant writes outside of the indicated area on the Postal order/Bank draft, we will be unable to process the payment.  Please do not write anything on the face of the Postal order/Bank draft.
  • The U.S Embassy cannot accept U.S. dollar bank drafts.
  • The Embassy is not authorized to accept personal or international checks.
  • If correct payment is not received, your full application will be returned to you in your self-addressed envelope.

Credit/ Debit Card Payments (In person Appointments Only)

  • Credit card payments can only be processed in person, the physical card and card holder must be present – we cannot accept credit card details supplied via mail or by phone.
  • Mobile phones are not permitted in the Embassy, so we can’t process payments through digital wallets such as Apple Pay, Google Pay, or PayPal.
  • Ensure you are the named card holder and that your credit card is signed before coming to your appointment.
  • All credit card transactions are processed in U.S. dollars. The actual amount charged to your credit card will reflect your bank’s exchange rate and, possibly, a transaction fee.
