Visas for Ireland

If you want to enter Ireland, you may need a visa. We will guide you through the application process. Many common questions are answered in Top Visa Questions.

There is a separate application process for Working Holiday Authorizations (WHA) visas. Working Holiday schemes are for use by young people who are citizens of Argentina who wish to stay in Ireland for an extended holiday and wish to work in order to fund their stay.

In Ireland, the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) is primarily responsible for dealing with immigration and visa matters.
