      3. APS 2 form guidelines These are detaled online in Australia.
      4. Irish Consulate, San Francisco
        1. States they service include Nevada---which I'd guessed since Irish Consulate, San Francisco is the closest non-honorary one to Las Vegas.
        2. Passport Application process This gives the list of professions who can witness a passport application---it includes notary public---that will work for me. You can email them for the application form APS2---"email the Consulate---provide your full name and street mailing address and specify the number of applications you are requesting."
        3. AP2 2 form for viewing, not downloading---but it's page not found.
