Immigration permission renewal update

As of December 8th, those renewing  their registration  of  their immigration permission will no longer need to submit their passport to have the  immigration  stamp added by their Registration Office.

This applies to renewals  for  Dublin-based students,  which  are  made through an online renewal  process  facilitated  by  the  Burgh  Quay office and renewals for those living  outside  Dublin,  which  are  made  in-person  in  local Registration Offices at Garda Stations nationwide.
You no longer have to leave your passport with a registration office while your application is being processed. It is expected that this will significantly improve the time taken to renew immigration permissions and  will  also  allow you to use your passport for other purposes while your application is being processed.
Successful  applicants  will be issued with an Irish Residence Permit (IRP) card  which  will  prove  that  you are legally registered in Ireland and identify the immigration permission that you hold.  If legal residence and proof  of  an up-to-date immigration permission is a requirement for access to  any  state services, the production of this valid IRP card will satisfy this requirement.  
If proof of a person’s reckonable residency in the State is  required, queries should be addressed to the Garda National Immigration Bureau, 13/14 Burgh Quay, Dublin 2.
 This update from the INIS is accurate as of December 14th 2020, please check their website for more information, along with a Frequently  Asked  Questions  document on these changes,  with relevant information for both individuals and organisations.
