In this paper we present a computational exercise for shut-down dose rate calculations for the JET tokamak using the in-house developed JSIR2S code package as part of its validation. The computation is performed in two parts: neutron transport and transport of secondary gamma radiation. In order to calculate neutron activation reaction rates with sufficiently low variance, hybrid variance reduction techniques using the ADVANTG code have been utilized. Probability based sampling of secondary source particles was performed. Calculated gamma dose rates after shut down are compared with dose rate measurements performed on site using ionization chambers. The C/E agreement for 1st octant is between 0.8 to 1 while statistically meaningfull results for the 2nd octant are yet to be obtained.
