Do you need to schedule your student visa in Ireland? Check below information about scheduling your appointment on Dublin immigration website!
This system has been in operation since September 2016, replacing long waiting lines at Dublin immigration building. Therefore, it’s worth remembering that the online appointments system is only available for Immigration in Dublin, Burgh Quay Registration Office. In other cities of Ireland, the appointment is made in person.
Important: The recommendation is that your appointment date should be at least 15 days after your arrival in the country, so there is time to find permanent accommodation (a visa requirement) and obtain all necessary documentation. – Read here what is needed for this process.

HOW TO SCHEDULE ON THE DUBLIN IMMIGRATION WEBSITE
1 – Go to: burghquayregistrationoffice.
2 – Next, will open a page where you fill in with your data. Since 13/02/2019 immigration has removed the categories (study, work, for example) to facilitate scheduling and vacancies available.
At the question, “I have a GNIB card” or “I have been registered before”: Choose NO if this is your first visa or YES if it’s a visa renewal.
4- After choosing the date you will receive an email confirmation of your appointment. You must print this confirmation and present it on the day at Immigration’s reception.
Important: The search for dates is really competitive, so try not to leave your appointment for the last minute. Usually, you have to try to find dates for a few days. You can also schedule in your own country, but always remembering to schedule it after at least 15 days of your arrival in Ireland.
