If you are a citizen of a country outside the European Economic Area, you must register your presence in Ireland with the Irish Immigration Service.

Registration is how the Irish Immigration Service records that you have been given permission to stay in Ireland. You may have been told to register your permission by an immigration officer at the airport or in a communication from Immigration Service Delivery (ISD). When you have successfully registered you will receive an Irish Residence Permit (IRP) card by post and that is your proof that you are legally in the State.  If you cannot get an appointment within this period don’t worry – your permission will not be cancelled nor will you be expected to leave the country while you are waiting to register. 

You cannot start this process until after you have arrived in Ireland. The International Office will host an information session during orientation explaining the immigration process.
