U.S. Citizen Services

Important Information Regarding ACS Appointments:

The Government of Ireland moved the entire country to Level 5 restrictions of its Living with COVID plan from December 30, 2020. The current restrictions will remain in effect until at least April 5, 2021. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 global pandemic and to protect the health of our customers and employees, the U.S. Embassy in Dublin is offering only very limited American Citizen Services at this time; we are not currently offering Notary or Renunciation services.

We continue to process mail-in renewal passport applications and strongly encourage eligible U.S. citizens to renew their U.S. passport by mail, as we cannot currently offer routine, in-person appointments. Please note U.S. passports can be renewed any time before or after they expire, and a U.S. passport is valid for travel to the United States until the day it expires. Further details on applying for a U.S. passport are available via the Passport & Citizenship links below.

If you require an in-person service urgently, please send an email to acsdublin@state.gov detailing the service you require, and the urgent circumstances related to your request. If you are seeking an emergency appointment to apply for a Consular Report of Birth Abroad, a U.S. passport, or to renew your expired U.S. passport, please include your personal details, location, recent travel history and prior U.S. passport issuance and expiry date. If you require an emergency appointment because you have imminent travel, please also include your confirmed travel itinerary. Finally, please also include a telephone contact number.

While we endeavor to continue to provide the highest quality customer service, our services are severely limited at this time. We appreciate your understanding and will advise you if and when we can accommodate your appointment request.

For further updates, please check this website regularly.
