Application requirements for Multiple Entry Visas

In line with Ireland's ongoing commitment to encourage and strengthen links between Ireland and the People's Republic of China, the availability of multiple entry visas for business and visit visa applicants has been extended.

  • One Year Multi-entry Visas will be considered for business or visit category applicants who have a limited travel history and who are assessed as bona fide travellers.
  • Two Year Multi-entry Visas will be considered for business or visit category applicants who have a satisfactory Schengen, UK or US visa history and who are assessed as bona fide travellers.
  • Three Year Multi-entry Visas will be considered for business category applicants with a satisfactory previous Irish visa history.

Please note that the issuance of a Multi-entry visa remains at the discretion of the Visa Office.

You should ensure that you submit all documentation required for your specific visa type.

Five Year Multi-Entry Visas will be considered for business category applicants with a satisfactory previous Irish Visa history who can demonstrate established and on-going business concerns in Ireland. As in all cases the applicant must have at least six months validity remaining before the expiration date of their passports.
