Further Temporary Extension of immigration permissions

22 December 2020

Notice 6 | Minister announces further temporary extension of immigration permissions and the closure of the Burgh Quay Registration Office from the 23 December 2020

This notice applies to Immigration and International Protection permissions to reside in the State that are due to expire between 21st January 2021 and 20th April 2021 and supplements all previous extension notices. This is the sixth, and expected to be the final, extension of permissions implemented since the outset of the pandemic.

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 21st January 2021 to 20th April 2021, 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 21st January 2021 - 20th April 2021 are automatically renewed by the Minister to the 20th April 2021. 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 that was renewed by the previous notices which therefore has a new expiry date between 21st January 2021 and 20th April 2021 is automatically renewed by this notice until 20th April 2021.

All renewals in the Dublin area are now being processed online only and the system has been available for all applicants since 20 July 2020 at https://inisonline.jahs.ie, and renewal applications will continue to be accepted.

Please note that due to the recently introduced Covid 19 restrictions the Registration Office in Burgh Quay will close from the 23 December 2020 until further notice. Customers with appointments for first time registrations are being contacted directly by the Immigration Service and they will be prioritised for appointments once the Registration Office can safely reopen.

Registrations outside of the Dublin area are processed by the Garda National Immigration Bureau through the Garda Station network.  Information on the contact details for all the registration offices outside Dublin is available at: https://www.garda.ie/en/about-us/our-departments/office-of-corporate-communications/news-media/reopening-of-registration-offices.html.     

Please Note: This notice provides the necessary time for those who can renew their permission, particularly Dublin based customers who can use the online system, to do so and to not wait until April.
