Important reminder for people wishing to apply for Family Reunification

Posted On: November 29, 2017

If you received refugee status or subsidiary protection before December 30th 2016, you have until 30th December 2017 to apply for Family Reunification for eligible family members. This includes programme refugees who arrived in Ireland in 2016.

If you were previously refused an application for Family Reunification for eligible relatives because your application fell outside of the current 12 month time limit in the International Protection Act, you may re-apply until 30th December 2017.

Everyone granted refugee status or subsidiary protection after 30th December 2016 has 12 months to make their application for family reunification. The Irish Refugee Council Drop-in Centre team can assist with applications, or you can contact us by phone at 017645854 or e-mail at info@irishrefugeecouncil.ie
