The online Registration Renewal System has been expanded to include all non-EU/EEA nationals based in Dublin who are seeking to renew their registration in the State.

Between today and 20 July,  those with an urgent need to travel and who require an Immigration Residence Permit (IRP) card before they travel can register through the online system. The online system will also remain available to students seeking to renew their registrations.

The Registration Office in Burgh Quay will also reopen on July 20 to facilitate those who need to register for the first time.

First Time Registrations

As first time registrations require biometrics (a photograph and fingerprints) to be taken, it is not possible to do these online.

To register, you must book an appointment by emailing Immigration Service Delivery at

Priority will be given to people who had their first time registrations cancelled. Anyone who had an appointment for first time registration cancelled will be contacted directly and given a new appointment.


The Garda Naturalisation and Immigration Bureau (GNIB) are currently considering how they can reopen registration offices countrywide while adhering to public health guidelines, and applicants should contact their local office to confirm when they will reopen.
