Welcome to the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service


Important Notice 1 | Possible telephone Scam

It has come to our attention that some of our customers have been contacted by telephone by a person purporting to be from INIS stating that they face deportation, and must make a payment to prevent their immediate deportation. INIS does not under any circumstances request payment for its services over the telephone.

See the full notice details here.


Important Notice 2 | New EU1 now available

A new application form for a Residence Card for a qualifying family member of a European Union national (EUTR1) has been launched by the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS).

Applications should now be submitted on the new EUTR1 application form, available below and at this link.

Applications made on the old form will not be accepted after Friday 30 November 2018, and will be returned.
