Irish Horse Register

In mid-June 2024 HSI’s new online portal and E-Passport system will go live. This will be replacing IHR Online. The new online portal and e-passport system, funded by the Department of Agriculture, Food, and the Marine (DAFM) under the Brexit Adjustment Reserve Fund, will support greater self-service functionality for breeders, faster passport application turnaround times and new functionality to apply for, and track, the status of online applications.

To support this change, payments of new applications and adding covering certificates has now been disabled. Breeders will be able to submit their applications on our new system in mid-June 2024 and further information will be published shortly. For breeders who have urgent applications, forms can be made available by emailing To avail of the same day service, an urgent fee of €150 is applied in addition to the application fee.

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we migrate to our new system. Thank you.
