Update: Renewal of residency due to expire between 20/05/2020 - 20/07/2020

Please note if your current residency permission is due to expire between the 20th of May to the 20th July 2020, the Department of Justice have announced that this permission is automatically renewed for two months. 

Below is the statement issued by INIS:

This notice applies to Immigration and International Protection permissions to reside in the State that are due to expire between 20/5/2020 and 20/7/2020 and supplements the notice of 20 March 2020 which renewed permissions due to expire between 20/3/2020 and 20/5/2020.

In light of the uncertainties caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, COVID-19, the following Notice applies to all persons with a current valid permission due to expire from 20/5/2020 to 20/7/2020, whether pursuant to domestic law or powers of the Minister, or Directive 2004/38/EC (Free Movement Directive).

All such permissions that are due to expire from 20/5/2020 to 20/7/2020 are automatically renewed by the Minister for a period of 2 months. The renewal of permission is on the same basis as the existing permission and the same conditions attach. In relation to persons with existing permission under Directive 2004/38/EC (Free Movement Directive), the automatic renewal is subject to the requirement that the person is complying with the requirements of the Directive.

Any permission which was renewed by the notice of 20 March 2020 and which therefore has a new expiry date between 20/05/2020 and 20/07/2020 is automatically renewed by this notice for a further 2 months.

The Dublin area Registration Office located in Burgh Quay remains temporarily closed.

Please also note that all Registration Offices for non-Dublin residents operated by An Garda Síochána have also temporarily closed
