Naturalisation and Immigration Service office in Dublin will reopen tomorrow

DUBLIN: The Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service office in Burgh Quay, Dublin, which was closed following COVID-19 restrictions, will reopen tomorrow for registrations. The operation had to be halted because applicants’ photographs and fingerprints were needed to complete the registration process.

The Minister of State for Law Reform and Immigration, James Browne, said the customers whose appointments were cancelled when Level 5 restrictions were enforced will be prioritized once the office reopens on Monday. He added that the registration staff will contact such customers in the coming days to reschedule appointments.

The Dublin office said members of the public who need to register for immigration permission can now book an appointment online. At the same time, people from outside the European Economic Area who want to stay in Ireland for more than 90 days must register with immigration authorities.

Residence permits are being extended until September 20 this year for foreign nationals who have been legally allowed to stay in the country since the beginning of the Pandemic.

The Immigration Service office said non-EU nationals living in Dublin who need to renew their visas have been able to complete the entire process online since July.

Registrations and permission renewals for people residing outside Dublin are processed by the Garda National Immigration Bureau through local Garda stations. The Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service has also recently launched a new customer service helpdesk in order to respond to inquiries more quickly.
