I applied for an Irish visa a year ago. This was refused due to insufficient funds. We dropped the plan of travel then and did not make any appeal. Now when I try to apply and book an appointment I get the error message “the passport number is duplicate” and I am unable to make the payment or book an appointment.

What can I do?
