The Immigration Service Delivery (ISD)’s Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) Document on the Impact of COVID-19 on Immigration and International Protection was updated on the 22/04/2021 with the following information in relation to Re-Entry Visas:
Q 13. Can I still apply for a re-entry visa?
A. Yes. Normal processing of re-entry visa applications has recommenced. For further details on how to apply for a re-entry visa and to download application forms please see http://www.inis.gov.ie/en/INIS/Pages/Re-entry+visas
Q 14. Does the Notice extend my re-entry visa?
A. No. The extension you received relates only to your permission to remain in Ireland and does not extend to your permission to enter Ireland without a valid visa, if you are a visa required national. You must now contact your nearest Irish Embassy or Consular Office abroad to enquire about making a visa application on-line in order to return to Ireland. Should you have queries concerning your visa application, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q 15. Can I attend at Burgh Quay to submit a re-entry visa application or to collect documents in respect of an adult or a child?
A. No. Re-entry Visa applicants are asked not to attend our office at 13-14 Burgh Quay as the service we provide is strictly a postal service. All re-entry visa applications must be submitted by Registered Post to the address on the application form. Application forms may be downloaded fromhttp://www.inis.gov.ie/en/INIS/Pages/Re-entry+visas
