Residence rights of non-EEA nationals – Ireland

If you are not a citizen of the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland, there are various forms of residence rights (permission to remain) that allow you to live in Ireland.

Permission to remain in Ireland is granted by the Department of Justice and Equality and consists of a special stamp endorsed on your passport. This is usually called a residence stamp. The various types of stamp and their meanings are covered in our document, Types of residence permission for non-EEA nationals.

If you are granted permission to remain, a Certificate of Registration is endorsed on your passport – see ‘Certificate of Registration below’ below.

Depending on the circumstances, members of your family may be able to come to Ireland with you, or to join you when you are here – see ‘Family members’ below.

The Citizens Information Board is the statutory body which supports the provision of information, advice and advocacy on a broad range of public and social services.
