Immigration Service Delivery has launched a new website available at

From July 28, 2021, this website will no longer be updated.


Renewal of Syrian Humanitarian Admission Programme (SHAP)

When your SHAP stamp is due for renewal, you must apply for renewal if you wish to remain in the State. The expiry date can be seen on the “Permitted to Remain in the State until” section of your stamp.

An application for renewal should be submitted to INIS at least four weeks before the expiry date.

Applications must be completed in respect of the Sponsor and each Beneficiary.

Once your application has been received by INIS, we will endeavour to process your application before the expiry date.  However, if your permission lapses during this period, it will not affect your renewal.

Applications will only be accepted in respect of people who have a SHAP Stamp.

Application Process

Complete the SHAP Renewal Application Form which you will receive in the post.
