Notice of Embassy Oslo Operations

Dear Friends,

In the current circumstances, the Embassy of Ireland is making some changes to how we operate.

We ask that you contact us on +47 2201 7200 to arrange an appointment.

Resumption of visa services for certain long-stay visa applications has commenced. For latest information on the resumption of visa services, please see the website of Immigration Service Delivery.

It remains the position that we are not accepting short stay visa applications. However, certain priority/emergency cases will continue to be processed. For further information please see the website of Immigration Service Delivery. For priority/emergency visa applications, please contact us directly so that we can guide you through the application process and advise you how to submit your documentation


Passport applicants must apply online and we encourage applicants to take heed of the Passport Office's notices at this time that passport processing will not occur while Ireland is at Level 5 on Ireland's National Framework for Living with COVID-19 restriction. You may still apply for your passport at this time and it will be processed once the Passport Office resumes operations.

The Embassy will not be accepting paper applications until further notice and received paper applications will be immediately returned to sender.

Processing of Foreign Birth Registrations will resume once Dublin returns to Level 3 on Ireland's National Framework for Living with COVID-19.
