Stamp 4 Renewal – Regularisation of Long Term Undocumented Migrants Scheme (Undocumented Scheme)

The Regularisation of Long-Term Undocumented Migrants Scheme was launched 31st January 2022 and closed on the 31st July 2022.

Applicants who were successful would have had a decision issued to them some time in 2022. Subsequently a 2-year “Stamp 4” permission was issued upon registration.

Therefore, Stamp 4 permissions issued in 2022 would expire sometime this year (2024).

This permission can be renewed at least a month before your Irish Residency Permit (IRP) card expires.

If you live outside Dublin, you should contact your local immigration office.

If you live in Dublin, you can renew online through the Immigration Service Delivery (ISD) website:
