Due to increasing travel restrictions globally as a result of COVID-19, and in the interests of the health and safety of our staff and applicants alike, Irish authorities have taken the decision to temporarily cease Visa application centre operations in China, effective from close of business 20/03/2020. This suspension also applies to visa applications for which an appointment has already been made. We will contact you to reschedule your appointment when we resume visa application centre operations.
The re-opening of the centres will be subject to notifications from central, provincial and city authorities, as well as Irish authorities, so please return to this page for further updates. For further information you may visit the website of the Irish Immigration Service http://www.inis.gov.ie/ or the website of the Embassy of Ireland in China https://www.dfa.ie/irish-embassy/china/.
