Hi
We are looking to visit Dublin as a family but our 12 year old’s passport has expired.
Does she need a valid passport to travel from the UK or will a birth certificate be enough as she is under 16?

Hi Mosh,

We are delighted to hear that you are planning a family trip to Dublin! 😊

For UK citizens, passports are not required and you can use official photo identification to enter the Republic of Ireland. There are no passport controls in operation for Irish and UK citizens travelling between the two countries. However, you must show identification to board a plane or a ferry, and some airlines and sea carriers only accept a passport as valid identification. I recommend for you to check what form of ID is required with your individual airline, ferry company or travel agent before travelling.

Visit our website for further information and useful links to the authorities if you require further clarification.
Please also remember to check out the current Covid-19 travel advice here. ✅

Do you need any recommendations on what to see and do in Dublin? We have some tips on our website and would be happy to help if you'd like further inspiration! 📧

Best wishes,
Rebecca ☘️
