Burgh Quay immigration office to reopen its doors

The Immigration Service’s registration office in Burgh Quay will reopen for customers living in the Dublin area on Monday, 10 May, as COVID-19 restrictions ease.

The Minister of State for Law Reform and Immigration, James Browne, said the office would prioritise those who had appointments cancelled when it closed in December, after restrictions under level five of the Government’s COVID-19 plan were imposed.

These people will be contacted over the coming days to arrange new appointment dates.

Online appointments

All other first-time registrations will be carried out by appointment only. The online appointments system is now open to accept bookings.

First-time registrations cannot be done online, as people need to have their photograph and fingerprints taken during the registration process.

While waiting to register in the Dublin area, customers are covered by the extension of immigration permissions to 20 September 2021. This means that all those legally in the State in March 2020 when the pandemic began can remain until 20 September.

Registrations outside of the Dublin area are processed by the Garda National Immigration Bureau through the garda station network.

The Department of Justice says people in the Dublin area who want to renew their immigration permissions can continue to do so online.
