Urgent appointment service for passport renewal

If you need an urgent appointment to process a passport renewal application, we have an Urgent Appointment Service for Passport Renewal. This is available at our offices on Mount Street in Dublin 2, Cork and also our office in London.

To avail of this renewal service, applicants must first book an appointment to attend the public office in Mount Street, Dublin 2, Cork or London. This is a limited service and slots are allocated by appointment only on a first come, first served basis.

Applicants who have applied using Passport Express are able to make renewal appointments with the Urgent Appointment Service. Applicants who have made online applications may also make renewal appointments with the Urgent Appointment Service. However, where an online application is advanced through the entitlement process, the Passport Service may not be able to facilitate an appointment, and will cancel the appointment and refund the fee.

We will offer three types of appointment and a fee will apply to this appointment service relative to how quickly you require your passport. London offers a 5 day turnaround service only.

  1. Same day renewal service. These appointments can be booked 3 days in advance.
  2. Four day renewal service. These appointments can be booked 3 weeks in advance.
  3. Five day renewal service (London only). These appointments can be booked 3 weeks in advance.
