IMPORTANT INFORMATION NOTICE - ABOLITION OF ORAC AND TRANSFER OF CERTAIN FUNCTIONS TO NEW INTERNATIONAL PROTECTION OFFICE
On the commencement of the International Protection Act 2015 on 31 December 2016, the Office of the Refugee Applications Commissioner (ORAC) is abolished and responsibility for the investigation of applications for international protection is transferred to a new International Protection Office (IPO) (www.ipo.gov.ie) within the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service. The IPO also considers, as part of a single procedure process, whether applicants should be given permission to remain. The IPO comprises, inter alia, a chief international protection officer and international protection officers who are independent in the performance of their international protection functions. ORAC staff will be transferring to the new IPO.
We are proud of our commitment to delivering a high-quality service to applicants for international protection and to refugees since ORAC was established in 2000 and we commit to providing a similar quality service in the International Protection Office within its new statutory framework.
Thank you for your co-operation over the years.
