The Department of Immigration and Emigration has reiterated calls for those obtaining passports through the one-day and normal service to visit the Department with prior appointments.
The Department said although the measure was made compulsory since the 17th of May, many individuals arrive without prior appointments.
Issuing a statement, the Department of Immigration and Emigration said a decision has been reached to serve only individuals with prior bookings for both the one-day and normal service.
The Department said appointments can be made through the official website of the Department or by contacting 0707 101 060. The services will be provided on government working days between 8.30am and 3pm.
