Notice | Short stay visa processing to resume

The Minister for Justice, Heather Humphreys TD, and the Minister of State for Law Reform, Youth Justice and Immigration, James Browne TD, have today announced the resumption of short stay entry visa processing.

The move will come into effect from Monday, 13 September 2021.

The move to resume short stay visa processing is in line with the next phase of the Government’s response to the pandemic, Covid-19: Reframing the Challenge, Continuing Our Recovery and Reconnecting.

All remaining Covid-19 restrictions on entry visa and preclearance processing, which were brought in as a necessary interim measure to help reduce the spread of Covid-19, have now been lifted.

All travellers arriving into Ireland must continue to comply fully with measures required by law including producing proof of vaccination, recovery from Covid-19 or a negative PCR test.

If you are unsure as to whether you require a visa/preclearance to enter Ireland you can check here by entering your nationality. Visit Ireland - Travel Path - Immigration Service Delivery (
