What is the change? The Burgh Quay Registration Office has reopened after five months of closures because of COVID-19 restrictions. First-time registrants can now book appointments online through this online portal.

  • Implementation time frame: The office reopened Monday, May 10.
  • Who is affected: All non-EEA nationals living with residential addresses in Dublin who need to attend a first-time registration appointment.
  • Next Steps: Employers should update any employees or potential employees who need to attend a first-time registration. Individuals should not attend the offices without a pre-booked appointment.

Analysis & Comments: Deloitte welcomes the news that the Registration Office is re-opening in Dublin, as this will allow individuals residing in Dublin to register their residency in Ireland and obtain their IRP cards.

We understand that because of COVID-19 restrictions some individuals are currently holding IRP cards that are not in date. The re-opening of the offices means that non-EEA nationals who require a physical, in-date, IRP card, can now obtain one, and should do so at their earliest convenience.

Non-EEA nationals residing in Dublin may continue to renew their permission online. More information can be found here.
