Hi everyone so I'm in a pickle trying to organise my partners passport, but it's a lot more complicated then I first thought, so he was born in England and had a English passport which expired when he was a teen, but has been living in Ireland 20years+ so I went to apply for a Irish one can anyone help me what do I do??

Surely a grown man can arrange his own passport?

I think he would need to apply for Irish citizenship rather than just apply for an Irish passport

He would be entitled to an Irish passport if he either was born on the island of Ireland before 2003 (I think) or has parents or grandparents who were Irish.
If not he would need to apply for citizenship which takes a considerable a ount of time and costs around 1800 euro. For that he needs to prove residency in Ireland.

He'd be better off renewing his UK passport; it will be much faster

He needs a renew his U.K. passport. If he’s still a U.K. citizen he’s still entitled to one.

@Mammymanic where is he actually a citizen of, Ireland or UK?

Why are you doing this and not him, is he disabled or unable to do it in some way?

Probably takes many months, if not years to go through all the processes. If he is still a British citizen then it would be much faster to renew his British passport

What a strange thread.
He is British not Irish according to OP post. You can't just apply for a passport of a country you aren't a citizen of. It'll take at least a year to get citizenship probably and far more expense than just getting a UK passport.

In addition, are you his PA? Is he paying for your administrative Labour?

He is a UK citizen so he needs a UK passport. Living in Ireland doesn’t make him Irish 😋
