This notice applies to Immigration and International Protection permissions to reside in the State that are due to expire between 20th July 2020 and 20th August 2020 and supplements the notice of 20th March and 13th May 2020.

All such permissions that are due to expire from 20th July to 20th August 2020 are automatically renewed for a period of 1 month. The renewal of permission is on the same basis as the existing permission and the same conditions attach.

In relation to persons with existing permission under Directive 2004/38/EC (Free Movement Directive), the automatic renewal is subject to compliance with the requirements of the Directive.

Any permission that was renewed by the notices of 20th March and 13th May 2020 and which therefore has a new expiry date between 20th July 2020 and 20th August 2020 is automatically renewed by this notice for a further 1 month.

The Dublin area Registration Office located in Burgh Quay will reopen on 20th July for first time registrations on an appointment only basis. All renewals in the Dublin area are now being processed online only and the system will be available for all applicants from 20 July 2020 at

Please also note that all Registration Offices for non-Dublin residents operated by An Garda Síochána have temporarily closed and applicants should check with their local office for details on reopening.
