Full Details

Minister announces further temporary extension of immigration permissions.

This notice applies to Immigration and International Protection permissions to reside in the State that are due to expire between 20th September 2020 and 20th January 2021 and supplements all previous extension notices.

This is the fifth, and expected to be the final, extension of permissions implemented since the outset of the pandemic and the longest granted.

In light of the uncertainties caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, COVID-19, the following notice applies to all persons with a current valid permission due to expire from 20th September 2020 to 20th January 2021, whether pursuant to domestic law or powers of the Minister, or Directive 2004/38/EC (Free Movement Directive).

All such permissions that are due to expire from 20th September 2020 – 20th January 2021 are automatically renewed by the Minister to the 20th January 2021.

The renewal of permission is on the same basis as the existing permission and the same conditions attach.

In relation to persons with existing permission under Directive 2004/38/EC (Free Movement Directive), the automatic renewal is subject to the requirement that the person is complying with the requirements of the Directive.

Any permission that was renewed by the previous notices which therefore has a new expiry date between 20th September 2020 and 20th January 2021 is automatically renewed by this notice until 20th January 2021.

Registrations need to be renewed with Immigration.
