Due to the Covid-19 Emergency, processing of applications for certificates received in the General Register Office will be delayed due to staff re-deployment to more urgent duties within the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection.
If your application is extremely urgent we will do our best accommodate you. You can contact us as per the contact details on this page.
Please be assured that your application will be processed as soon as we are in a position to do so.
