Covid- 19 Notice
Changes to Embassy Working Arrangements
In order to comply with the orders of the office of the Mayor of Moscow, the Embassy is changing its working arrangements from Tuesday, October 26th. To minimise the spread of Covid-19, we will be implementing remote working policies. This will have a direct impact on our ability to answer phone calls and queries to the Embassy on a daily basis. As such, we highly recommend all queries to the embassy to be sent to the Embassy's email address, email@example.com . This mailbox is monitored frequently and we will respond to your query as soon as we are able. We hope that these measures will be temporary and normal working to resume at the Embassy as soon as possible.
We ask for your patience and understanding as we comply with the measures of the local authorities to reduce the spread of Covid-19.
As before, the Embassy’s public office is operating strictly on an appointment only basis. Individuals with symptoms of Covid 19, who have had contact with a confirmed case or who returned from a high-risk area should not come to the Embassy.
Appointments must be made in advance by visiting the Contact Us page on our website and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Please bear in mind that these arrangements may be subject to change depending on developments.
Our out of hours duty service also continues as normal and Irish citizens who require urgent assistance can leave a message on our answering machine outside of normal working hours.
