Notice 2 | Minister announces further temporary extension of immigration permissions

26 March 2021

This notice applies to all Immigration and International Protection permissions to reside in the State that are due to expire between 21 April 2021 and 20 September 2021 and to permissions extended under previous notices. This is the seventh, and expected to be the final, extension of permissions granted since the outset of the pandemic.

In light of the continuing uncertainties caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, COVID-19, the following notice applies to all persons with a current valid permission due to expire from 21 April 2021 to 20 September 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 21 April 2021 to 20 September 2021 are automatically renewed by the Minister to 20 September 2021.

Notice 4 | Students on Stamp 2 permissions

25 September 2020

In March 2020 we announced a temporary change to the number of hours students were allowed to work as part of their Immigration Conditions. This is changing and students will be limited to working a maximum of 20 hours per week so as to concentrate efforts on their study course. Students must also be enrolled on a course of study.  See the full details of this notice here…
