If my old passport was issued around the 1990s (or older) and I lost it through the years, is it still considered for RENEWAL or NEW Application?

You have an old passport that is already phased out so there’s no point in renewing it.

DFA has been issuing the new e-passport since 2009. Renewal is only possible if you have this e-passport.

According to DFA, “Renewal of Brown Passports, Green Passports, Machine Readable Passports (Maroon) or any older Passports will be treated as NEW APPLICATION.”
