23 June 2020

A new online Registration Renewal System for non-EEA national students based in Dublin was launched by the Minister for Justice and Equality, Charlie Flanagan, TD, on 22 June, 2020.  

Students wishing to renew their registration will complete their renewal online without having to book an appointment or personally attend the registration office.  The service will be made available to all categories of non-EEA national students residing in the Dublin area, who are eligible for renewal of their permission to reside in Ireland.

Students seeking to renew their permission will now complete the application form online via the following link, upload copies of supporting documents online, pay the applicable fee and then submit their passport and current IRP card via registered post.  Documents will be checked and, if approved, the passport will be stamped and returned by registered post and an IRP card issued by express post.
