Passport Office for Irish citizens in the North of Ireland

To open a Passport Office in the North of Ireland

Why is this important?

With the impending uncertainty of Brexit and following a commitment from the Irish Government to stand up for the rights of citizens in the North, opening a passport office would improve infrastructure, service delivery, investment and confidence. 2017 saw over 82,000 passport applications come from the North alone. The call to open an office is supported by a broad range of community organisations, political parties and media outlets, and would go some way in meeting the growing demand for passport applications and renewals from the Six Counties.


Reasons for signing

  • This should have happened a long time ago. Irish citizens in the North are not second class.
  • Im a naturalised Irishman and Ireland's second city should be represented.
  • This should have been in situ after the GFA, lets hope this helps get it done.
