A visa is a paper document affixed to a page of the holder's passport. It permits a person to travel to Ireland during the validity period stated on the visa. It does not guarantee entry to the State. An Immigration Officer at the port of entry has the authority to grant or deny admission, and to decide the duration of a person's stay in the State.

The Embassy of Ireland in Kenya would like to inform that we cannot confirm the authenticity of recruitment agents and job offers in Ireland.  

The Embassy can only give information on employment visa requirements and procedures for jobseekers with valid Irish work Permit issued by Department of Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation (DJEI)
