Change of Status
An application for a change of immigration status can include changing from one category or stamp to another or a variation of the duration of the permission. The key point is to be determined is whether you meet the criteria for the new status sought. Our experienced advisor will be able to advise you on your suitability.
Application for a Change of Immigration Status in Ireland
If you currently have immigration permission to be in the State (Stamp 1, 2, or 3) and a valid in date Irish Residence Permit (IRP) or GNIB Card, you may apply to change that immigration permission.
If you do not have current immigration permission, you may not apply for a change of status in this way. Any person seeking to change their immigration status should do so well before their current immigration permission expires. The fact that an application for change of status has been made and is under consideration does not affect or extend the applicant's current permission.
