🔍 𝐅𝐚𝐜𝐭: Your permit must:
Be valid at the time of application and not already expired
Have less than 12 week of validity at the time of application.
So long as you apply for renewal whilst your permit is valid, it is okay if your current permit expires while you wait for your new one to be issued.
After receiving your new permit, you will also need to renew your Irish residence permit.
