Latest information on Visas

As of Wednesday 16 June 2021, the temporary entry and transit visa restrictions for nationals of Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay and Bolivia have been lifted.  For further information, please see the website of Immigration Service Delivery. 

Nationals of these countries should note that, even though they are no longer required to be in possession of an entry visa to travel to the State, they are required to meet the conditions of entry that attach to their particular purpose of stay in Ireland. They will have to satisfy an Immigration Officer on arrival that they meet these conditions of entry.

The Government of Ireland continues to advise against all non-essential travel at this time. The strong advice from the Government remains that everyone, regardless of their nationality or visa/preclearance status, or where they started from, who cannot provide proof of an essential purpose to travel to, should not travel to Ireland.

Please note all passengers arriving in Ireland must:

  • complete a COVID-19 Passenger Locator Form
  • provide evidence that you have a negative or ‘not detected’ result from a COVID-19 Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) test carried out no more than 72 hours before you arrive into Ireland, or have evidence that you are exempt from this legal requirement

If you are travelling from or via a designated state then you must also pre-book and pre-pay for a place in a designated facility for mandatory hotel quarantine. At present, all passengers from Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay and Bolivia will have to complete mandatory hotel quarantine on arrival in Ireland.

Further information is available on the travel section of the website.

If you are unsure as to whether you require a visa/preclearance to enter Ireland you can check here by entering your nationality.
