If you have completed the application correctly, you should get the passport within 10 working days from the time we receive your application.
Use the 11-digit barcode number (on the receipt issued by An Post) to track the passport application.
During the peak season, the volume of applications can increase dramatically. While we aim to process all applications within the appropriate timeframe we would advise that our busiest period for processing applications occurs from April to September.
From the period of October to March a larger amount of applications are processed with a turnaround time of 3 to 5 working days. We would therefore advise applicants who are looking for a quicker turnaround time to apply during these months. (see above diagram for numbers of applications processed).
