If you are a citizen of a country outside the European Economic Area, you must register your presence in Ireland with Irish Immigration. 

The International Office will assist you with this process and facilitate the booking of appointments with the local Immigration Officer at the Leixlip Garda (police) station if you live in Maynooth or the surrounding towns in Co Kildare.  If you live in Dublin you will need to register at Burgh Quay Immigration Office.  You do not need to start this process until after you have arrived in Ireland. The International Office will host a session during orientation explaining the immigration process.
