Updated FAQ & expansion of e-filings for change of immigration permission applications in Ireland
INIS has also expanded electronic filing for certain types of change of permission applications from those already announced.
In light of the uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, as a temporary measure between now and 20th May 2020, applications for the following change of permissions may be submitted electronically to the Registration Office, Burgh Quay, Dublin (email@example.com):
From Stamp To Stamp Stamp 1 (Critical Skill Employment Permit) Stamp 4 (after 2 completed years on CSEP and DBEI Stamp 4 support letter) Stamp 1 (Employment Permit) Stamp 4 (after 5 completed years on Employment Permits) Stamp 2 Stamp 1 (Employment Permit) Stamp 2 Stamp 1A (Trainee Accountant Contract) Stamp 1, 2 or 3 Stamp 1G (Spouse of Critical Skill Employment Permit holder) Stamp 1, 2 or 3 Stamp 4 (Spouse of Irish National)
All required documentation should be scanned and included in the application. All eligibility criteria will continue to apply. Where a permission has been granted, applicants will still be required to register the change as normal once the Registration Office in Burgh Quay and local Registration Offices reopen.
