Ireland: Long Stay and Pre-clearance Visa Processing Resumed

Key Points 

  • Irish Consulates are now processing ALL long-stay visas, including D visas.
  • Pre-clearance scheme applications are also now being processed, which includes non-EEA national family members of U.K. Nationals.  

Overvie

Visa processing was suspended at all Irish Consulates and Embassies in the beginning of May due to COVID-19. The government has lifted the suspension and is now accepting certain consular applications, including long stay and pre-clearance visas. Short-term visa applications are still not being processed.  

What Are The Changes? 

The Ireland immigration offices halted all visa immigration processing for a few weeks to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, but we are now seeing various types of visa processing resumed.
