Visa and Citizenship Services

The Australian Embassy in Dublin, Ireland does not process visa or citizenship applications. For clients resident in Ireland processing is undertaken electronically through the online ‘eVisa’ service, or by processing centres in Australia, or by the immigration office at the Australian High Commission in London, UK.

You should not book flights or make travel commitments until you have a visa to travel to Australia. The department will not be liable for any financial loss incurred by clients whose visa application was finalised later than expected or where an application is unsuccessful.
