Updating a passport
This document explains how to renew your Irish passport when you have your old Irish passport.
Since 30 March 2017, it is possible to do this online.
You can now renew your passport online as mentioned above, or you can send a traditional application form with photos (cue a trip to the local photo booth).
You can pick up the forms you need from many branches of the Post Office. You will need to send an application form and photos for a child's passport.
You must first submit a request if you want to lower a pass holder's salary.
If you are in a bit of a hurry, see below for the fastest ways to get your passport.
You will then need to print a copy and bring it with you to your passport interview, along with your most recently issued passport and 2 identical photographs that meet the Australian Passport Office's photograph guidelines.
If you prefer, the Australian Passport Office can mail you a hard copy of the renewal form.
You can use our locations and hours tool to find a Post Office near you that conducts passport interviews and make an appointment.
You can complete the passport renewal form online through the Australian Passport Office.
Phone the Australian Passport Information Service on 13 12 32 to request this.
