If you’re planning on visiting Ireland from a non-EEA country, you’ll need a visa to enter and stay in the country. The type of visa you need depends on why you’re coming and how long you plan to stay.
There are many types of visas available. These include:
- Business visa – If you work outside Ireland but need to enter the country to carry out duties related to your work.
- Work visa/permit – If you’re looking for, or already have short-term or long-term employment in Ireland.
- Spouse/family visa – If you want to stay in Ireland for longer than 3 months with a spouse or family member.
- Tourist visa – If you are planning to travel to Ireland for up to 90 days.
- Student visa – If you want to study in Ireland for more than 3 months.
- Join family visa – If you want to enter Ireland and stay for longer than 3 months with family members.
- Retirement visa – Do you wish to retire to Ireland.
- Stamp 0 visa – If you are a visiting academic, or an elderly relative visiting Ireland for a short stay.
- De-facto visa – If you’re in a relationship with an Irish national.
