Re: Foreign Birth Registration

My FBR and supporting documents arrived via the USPS in a white 8.5x11 envelope. It was included in the regular mail - no special delivery and no signature required. This was in April 2021.

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Just FYI, I never received a congratulations email. After my confirmation of address email in December 2020, my FBR certificate and supporting documents surprisingly arrived at my home in the US four months later.

Hang in there!

Re: First time passport application

Just as a reference, I have a few packages from Americas & Asia to Ireland recently. It takes on average 2-3 weeks to complete the export process and put them onto a plane, and another 2-4 weeks before the tracking number shows up on An Post. Once it shows up, it should just take 2-3 days for it to...

Re: First time passport application

If it says it’s still waiting for documentation, it means they have not received your application yet. They should update your application status to document received as soon as they received it from the post office. If you have a USPS tracking number, it should look like AB123456789CD. You should ...

Re: First time passport application

The Irish passport tracking states that it's still waiting for my documentation. Did anyone else experience long delays in getting their supporting materials delivered? I'm wondering if the Passport Office won't officially "accept" documentation for those of us who applied after 29 April. In other ...

Hi Everyone, I applied using Passport online on 18 May 2021. Sent my supporting materials from the USA via USPS Priority International on 20 May. My USPS tracking has said "in transit to next facility" since 25 May. I know that this could mean that my packet is sitting in a facility somewhere or stu...
