Hi all,

My grandmother (born in Ireland) and mum (born in UK) have both applied for their first Irish passports. Think my grandmother's was a paper application so don't know the status, but here is the timeline of my mum's online application in case anyone finds it useful. It's still processing but will update when the status has changed.

Completed online application: 4/4/2021
Documents received: 4/6/2021
Estimated issue date: 6/7/2021

Based on earlier posts here I'm guessing the passport will be issued in the next couple of weeks.

I have also done a Foreign Birth Registration at a similar time, but guessing I won't hear anything for at least a year!
As an update to this my mum's passport status has changed to 'printing' today, which is 8 days after the estimated. Here is the timeline so far (spelt out, so not to confuse US readers)

Online application: 4th April 2021
Documents received: 4th June 2021
Status changed to 'processing': 8th June 2021
Estimated issue date: 6th July 2021
Actual printing date: 14th July 2021

Thanks a million for sharing. It helps all in this group to know what dates are being processed right now.
Will sincerely appreciate if you can update when your Mum actually receives the passport and then her original documents.

Hi all, just wondering if anyone's paper application is currently being processed? I was told nearly 3 months ago now that my paper application had been sent to Ireland and I would receive a tracking number once it was with a checker, but have heard nothing since. It's frustrating when online applications are at least receiving small status updates- definitely seems like the better route! Good luck to all.

First time adult naturalized citizen.

I also applied for my child and sent documents the same day I applied for my own passport, but my child's application is still processing.

We are hearing a lot from those who applied in Mar-April when the system was on-hold. No news from people who applied in May/June and already got the passport ?

I thought they were prioritizing applications received up to April 31st (and then the rest will get processed)? I assume they haven't cleared that backlog yet.

I read somewhere that total backlog was around 90,000 before 1st May and maximum capacity of the department is to process around 100,000 applications each month ... It has been 80 days since 1st May,so, not too sure why there is still backlog !! Maybe that backlog ACTUAL number was much higher....

I got connected to the web chat today just to ask them if they still stick on the 40 business days for first time applications. The person simply told me they have a backlog and can't even give me a number :) Basically 40 business days may actually be longer cos they still seem to struggle with lots of applications. Who knows maybe 40 is still realistic but once I get mine printed I will share the timeline.

They just give vague information. Why can not they share the real numbers ? How many applications of backlog processed - how many remaining etc... Everything is automated these days; it will not take them even 1 minute to extract this info if they really wish to share but then probably we are just an application number to them. :)

What is your timeline so far GIGPH? I assume you won't have to wait too much longer if my mum applied April but didn't send her docs in until early June. Her wait was 30 working days from sending the documents.

I applied online on 18th June, docs received by them on 22nd June - so if you look at 30 days timeline, I should get lucky tomorrow !! :) But the issue here is ... They seem to be processing applications received ONLY before 30th April(Backlog applications).
My assumption : Anyone who applied from 1st May onwards is still in queue and the processing has not started.
Basis of my assumption : I have not seen anyone on this thread who disclosed that he/she applied in May/June and got the passport.

For adult. As far as I understand - they are more cautious while processing child's application.
