Due to periodic changes in the format of documents issued by civil registration authorities, and to protect the integrity of the Foreign Birth Registration (FBR) system, previous verifications of civil documents by the FBR service cannot be relied upon for subsequent FBR applications. Accordingly, FBR applications that are submitted separately each require a full set of supporting documents to be submitted for authentication and verification. 

If the Applicant would like further information on the requirements for their application, they can speak to a dedicated Foreign Birth Registration agent by contacting the Passport Service Customer Service Hub on +353 1 671 1633.
