What to do next

If your application is approved

If you sent your visa application directly to the Dublin Visa Office, they will contact you about issuing your visa.

Otherwise, contact the embassy or consulate where you made your application.

If your application is refused

You will be sent a letter of refusal that explains why your application was not approved.

You can appeal your visa decision at no additional cost. To do so, you must submit an appeal within 2 months of the date on your letter of refusal.
