SPECIAL NOTES


  • Indian nationals visiting the UK on “general visas” will be able to visit Ireland from 1 July 2011 without the need for a separate visa. General visas” cover short-term tourist and business visitors. Other types of visa, for example transit visas, long-term student visas, join spouse or family reunification visas, are not encompassed
  • Holders of UK “general visas” will be able to travel to Ireland within the period of validity of that visa without the requirement to obtain a separate Irish visa.

  • A person may return to Ireland within the period of validity of the UK visa but will not be able to stay in Ireland for more than 90 days in any one visit.
