Changes to Embassy Working Arrangements
The Embassy and Visa Office remain open and operational as normal. Visas and Passport applications continue to be accepted and processed as normal.
To minimise the spread of Covid-19, we have implemented remote working policies. This will limit our ability to answer phone calls to the Embassy. 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.
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.
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.
Irish citizens in Russia must lodge their passport application online here. (https://www.dfa.ie/irish-embassy/russia/our-services/passports/how-to-apply-for-a-passport/)
Please renew your passport before the date of expiry well in advance. Remember, an out of date passport does not fly.
Detailed information on Irish visas and how to apply for them are available here.
