Key Points

The Burgh Quay Registration Office in Dublin, Ireland has announced that they will begin accepting appointments for foreign nationals needing an Irish Residence Permit (IRP) card.

What are the Changes?

Due to COVID-19 restrictions that were put in place, some foreign nationals may not hold a valid IRP card. Any non-EEA nationals who have not received their initial IRP card should set up an appointment through the Burgh Quay Registration Office’s website.
