Written answers (Question to Justice)

The application for the person referred to by the Deputy was received by the Undocumented Unit of my Department on 14 February 2022. A decision letter was sent to them on 29 June 2022.

When attending the immigration registration office to register their permission, they must bring with them the original letter granting the permission under the scheme and a valid passport. Anyone over the age of 18 years will have to pay the registration fee of €300 and their registration will be valid for two years.

My Department's Registration Office in Burgh Quay is responsible for registering immigration permissions for customers residing in the Dublin area only.

The Registration Office’s customer service team is  available to support customers who may have language difficulties or who may need assistance with translation. A number of multi-lingual videos describing the registration process and what to expect are available on my Department's immigration website

Registrations outside of the Dublin area are processed by the Garda National Immigration Bureau (GNIB) through the Garda Station network. The allocation of appointments with GNIB is a matter for An Garda Síochána. Information on the contact details for all registration offices located outside Dublin is available at:
