Visas/ Working Holiday Authorisations
News09 September 2021
As of 13 September, we are now accepting all short stay, long stay and preclearance visa applications.
Please visit the website of Irish Immigration for more detail.
Please note that the Consulate General of Ireland in San Francisco aims to have visa applications returned in 4 weeks upon receipt of a full and complete application. Ensure you have all the necessary documents listed on irishimmigration.ie prior to submitting your application.
In order to ensure that resources can be used to best effect, the Consulate cannot provide updates on visa application processing.
If you are unsure as to whether you require a visa/preclearance to enter Ireland you can check here by entering your nationality.
The processing of Working Holiday Authorisations has resumed in the U.S. & Canada as of November 1. See here for more information.
