DAERA Direct offices will open to customers again from Monday, June 7, Agriculture Minister Edwin Poots has confirmed.
Services to customers will be available on a strict appointment only basis for the immediate future.
Mr Poots said: “In line with the NI Executive’s Pathway out of Restrictions, I have agreed that the DAERA Direct offices should reopen to customers from 7 June on a strict appointment only basis.
“The arrangements are targeted at those customers who require face-to-face assistance with complex transactions.
“Other routine business with DAERA should continue to be conducted online, by telephony or by delivering documents to the post box at the local office.
“I am satisfied that this limited re-opening can be managed within the existing Executive and public health guidelines and will be kept under review.”
Before attending a DAERA Direct Office please book an appointment by contacting your local DAERA Direct office on 0300 200 7840.
DAERA Direct Offices closed to the public in March 2020 due to the Covid pandemic.
