IRISH ID Photo Code
It is now by far the most convenient, easiest and most secure way to attach your photo to your online passport application.
The whole process of validating and sending your photo to The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) is simplified - the handling of physical printed photographs or transferring and uploading of digital files is no longer required - just enter your unique code in the required field.
We will make the required checks so that your photo is compliant.
Your photo will then be biometrically checked online directly with the system at The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) to ensure it passes their passport photo regulations & requirements.
You will then receive an email that it has passed and has been pre-approved and you will be issued with a unique Passport Photo Code.
You will receive an email containing your unique Passport Photo Code.
Enter your code into the required field in your online Irish Passport application and your pre-approved photo will appear automatically!
The code is valid for 6 months from the date of issue and must be used within this time.
After 6 months the code will not be accepted by the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA).
If you have followed the DFA Photo Requirements on how take your photo it will take between 24-48 hours (If not a lot sooner) to receive an email with the Passport Photo Code.
If you have not followed the DFA Photo Requirements we will ask you to send us a new photo by email.
3 attempts are allowed for you to send us a photo that follows the requirements - after the third attempt we will cancel your order and you will receive a full refund.
Some automatic photo booths supply photo codes, but they do not check your image directly online with The Department of Foreign Affairs system to ensure it passes their strict passport photo requirements.
We will make sure your photo is compliant & biometrically checked directly online with The Department of Foreign Affairs.
