My Irish passport application is now at Stage 3 of 6.

Status: Received on 13/07/2016

Application No. XXXXXXXXXX is at Stage 3 of 6: Your Application is scheduled to be checked for Passport entitlement.

Your passport application is currently being checked. This process can take up to 4 working days.

Although it says 4 days for this stage, the page warns that timescales are not applicable for applications lodged through the London Passport Office.

From my perspective it's great to see that things are happening to the application. Fingers crossed that I've filled it in correctly and supplied all the correct documentation. It's always a bit nerve racking with things of this type because you do them so infrequently.
