FROM today you can go to the police station to renew your ID cards and passports if the province you live in has entered Phase 2.

This is the first day during the state of emergency where such a service will be available.

There are a couple of rules that people need to follow regarding these services.

These include: Paying with the exact amount in cash (€12 for ID card and €30 for passport), going individually – unless you’re a minor – and of course wear a face mask, which is now compulsory under the law.
