Need to renew your Irish passport, or are you an Irish citizen applying for your first Irish passport?

Working Holiday

This scheme follows an agreement between the governments of New Zealand and Ireland to promote travel between both countries of citizens between the ages of 18 to 30 to work and travel for one year in either country.


Anyone born outside Ireland who, at the time of their birth had a parent, who was an Irish Citizen, otherwise than by birth in Ireland, may become an Irish Citizen by application for Foreign Birth Registration.
