I hold a UK visit visa and am currently in the UK. I would like to travel to Ireland for a visit can I apply through the London Visa Office

All visa applicants should apply for their visa in their country of permanent residence. The London Visa office can only process visa applications from UK residents.

In exceptional circumstances (i.e. serious illness or death of a family member in Ireland), a visa to travel to Ireland may be issued by this office to the holder of a UK visit visa. In that event, proof of the exceptional circumstances will be required.
