Transfer of responsibility for IRP registration and renewal for County Cork and Limerick

Following the change of IRP registration and renewal arrangement for residents in County Kildare, Wicklow, and Meath, County Cork and Limerick will be added to the list effective July 8, 2024.

First-time Irish residence permission applicants from Cork and Limerick must attend the Burgh Quay, Dublin 2 registration office instead of going to the Garda National Immigration Bureau (GNIB).

For resident permission renewal applicants, you will no longer be required to revisit the office. You can do the IRP renewal online using the ISD online renewal portal here. We have included some crucial information regarding your registration below:

An appointment with the office is required and can be booked by phone (1800 800 630) between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday to Friday. You will be asked for your email address and passport details, so get them ready before you call the office.

The documents required for your IRP registration will be:

  • Your passport

  • Printed and completed address form attached to your appointment’s confirmation email

  • Any other supporting documents that are relevant to your status

Please note that every document you provide must be printed, or it will not be accepted, and you will need to book a return appointment to complete your application. Applicants must also pay for their registration at the office; the authorities will only accept debit or credit card payments, so remember to bring your card with you, as contactless payment is not allowed.
