A visa is a certificate in your passport or travel document that shows you are authorised to land at an Irish port or airport Ireland. However, there may be a number of other conditions you need to meet before you are permitted to enter Ireland. On arrival at the airport, make sure that you have copies of the documents submitted with your visa application in case of inspection by immigration officers. Many common questions regarding visas can be found in Top Visa Questions.
