Reopening of Registration Offices

For updates visit: inis.gov.ie/en/INIS/Pages/COVID-19-updates-and-announcements

All permissions that are due to expire from 20th August 2020 and 20th September 2020 are automatically renewed by the Minister for a period of 1 month. The renewal of permission is on the same basis as the existing permission and the same conditions attach. Any permission that was renewed by the notices of 20th March 2020, 13th May 2020 and 16th July 2020 which therefore has a new expiry date between 20th August 2020 and 20th September 2020 is automatically renewed by this notice for a further 1 month. 

Reopening of Registration Offices

21 August 2020

Having closed to consider the revised public health guidance issued earlier this week, the Dublin area Registration Office at Burgh Quay will re-open for first-time registrations with effect from 24 August, by appointment. All appointments which have been issued for a date on or after 24 August will be honoured, and the office will operate with strict social distancing measures in place to protect our staff and customers.

The Registration Offices outside Dublin (previously opened) will also reopen on 24 August 2020. Appointments issued for a date after this will proceed with social distancing measures in place.

All renewals in the Dublin area are now being processed online only and the system has been available for all applicants since 20 July 2020 at inisonline.jahs.ie, and renewal applications will continue to be accepted and processed.
