Passports and Visas

Citizens of EU countries (UK, France, Italy, Spain, Luxembourg, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Greece, Austria, and Portugal) will require either a passport or a national identification card to enter Ireland.

The same applies to citizens of Liechtenstein, Monaco and Switzerland.

Citizens of the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand do not require visas to enter Ireland.

Visas are required by citizens of the following countries: Afghanistan, Albania, Bulgaria, Cuba, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Ghana, Iran, Iraq, Nigeria, Romania, Lebanon, Moldova, the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro), Somalia, Sri Lanka and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Those with a Hong Kong Certificate of Identity require an entry visa. Holders of British Hong Kong passports who have a right of abode in the UK do not require entry visas.

Other non-EU citizens will always require a passport but not a visa for a short-term stay.

Where possible visa applications should be made to the Irish consular representative in the country of origin. Otherwise, direct application can be made to:
