 COVID 19 Update – Visa Service

As part of a wide range of travel measures announced on the 26 January, and in light of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, visa-free travel to Ireland for nationals of South Africa and all countries in South America has been suspended from midnight on the 27th January. Nationals of these countries will require to be in possession of an entry visa or transit visa, as appropriate, for travel to Ireland regardless of where they reside or the purpose of their travel to Ireland. See Government press release here

In addition, with effect from 29 January 2021, the Department of Justice has temporarily ceased accepting new visa/ preclearance applications globally.

Increasing travel restrictions and the measures introduced as part of the Irish Government’s efforts to interrupt the transmission of COVID-19 means that travel may not be possible and even if possible is not advisable unless absolutely essential. It is currently against the law for any person (regardless of nationality or passport) to travel within Ireland for non-essential purposes and people can be fined for doing so. Enforcement of this has been strongly increased over the last few days.

These measures are designed to support our public health restrictions on movement, including into and out of Ireland.

The strong advice is that everyone, regardless of their nationality, visa/preclearance status, or the origin of travel, who cannot provide proof of an essential purpose to travel to or within Ireland, should not travel to Ireland.

The situation will continue to be reviewed in consultation with the relevant authorities in the coming weeks.

We intend to resume accepting visa applications as soon as safety concerns abate.

In the meantime, only certain emergency cases will be processed. Further information is available on the website of Immigration Service Delivery.

For emergency visa applications, please contact us directly so that we can guide you through the application process and advise you how to submit your documentation.

On Tuesday 12th January, the Government of Ireland announced the following restrictions on travelling into Ireland:

  • All arrivals into Ireland must present a negative PCR test result taken within 72 hours prior to arrival into the State.
  • Children under the age of 6 are exempt from this requirement.
  • Passengers arriving from red or grey regions (including Jordan) are advised to restrict their movements for 14 days, or until they have a negative result of a second PCR test taken no less than 5 days after arrival.
  • Passengers from ‘green’ and ‘orange’ regions under the EU Traffic Lights system are not advised to restrict their movements on arrival, but must adhere to the local public health guidance.
  • Irish public health advice is to avoid non-essential overseas travel to/from Ireland.
  • If you must travel to Ireland, you need to fill out a COVID-19 Passenger Locator Form online before you travel. To fill out form and for further info and advice go to form .
