Allow Plenty Of Time When Applying For Irish Passports – Peacock

1 Mins read
BT Coleraine

Sinn Féin Local Government candidate Leanne Peacock has encouraged the public to apply for their Irish passport well in advance of the upcoming holiday season.

Miss Peacock said, “Given the looming Brexit deadline date for 29th March and the increasing possibility of a ‘no deal Brexit’ there has been a surge in the number of people applying for their Irish passports in addition to the usual surges in applications at this time of the year as people book and prepare for their Summer holidays. This result’s in a delay in issue times for passport applications”

“I would really encourage people who want an Irish passport, especially first-time applicants and families, to apply at their earliest convenience as there are security checks that need to be made with every application which can take time. Anyone with an existing passport should check the expiry date prior to booking and ensure that there is at least 6 months left on your passport after your date of travel as this is a requirement for travel to many destinations. ”

“This situation strengthens the case for the Government to invest in improving this service for residents in the north of Ireland and deliver a passport office within the north.”
“Sinn Féin has been at the forefront of the campaign in calling for an Irish passport office in the north. If anyone requires help with their passports please do not hesitate to contact myself or any local Sinn Féin rep in the area.”
