Effective 8 September 2016, the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) has introduced an online booking system for appointments for residence registration at the Garda National Immigration Bureau (GNIB) office in Burgh Quay, Dublin.
In addition, effective 6 September 2016, the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation (DJEI) has officially launched its new Employment Permits Online System (EPOS).
INIS online registration appointment booking system
This is a long-awaited system intended to ease the stressful and time-consuming process which has been in place until now.
Employment Permits Online System
The much-anticipated new online application system for employment permits is now live and available for use. The applicant completes an online application, documents must be scanned and uploaded and a fee paid by debit or credit card through a secure payment gateway. It is hoped that EPOS will make the employment permit application process faster and easier.
