The Embassy is closed to the public in light of the current COVID-19 outbreak and the declaration of a State of Emergency which came into force on 1 April 2020. Please contact the Embassy on +258 21 501 700 if you require assistance or would like to make an appointment. 

Travel to Ireland

If you arrive into Ireland from overseas you will be asked to show valid proof of vaccination or valid proof that you have recovered from COVID-19 in the past 180 days. If you do not have valid proof of vaccination or recovery, you will need to present evidence of a negative RT-PCR result from a test taken within 72 hours prior to arrival into the country.

If you cannot present any evidence of immunity or a recent RT-PCR test result, you may be denied boarding. If you arrive in Ireland without proof of vaccination, proof recovery or a valid RT-PCR test result, you will be required to take a test within 36 hours of arrival. Post arrival quarantine is no longer required.

For further details on inward travel to Ireland, including COVID-19-related requirements, please see and the HSE website

As part of a wide range of travel measures announced on 26 January 2021, and in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Justice temporarily ceased accepting new visa/preclearance applications globally, with the exception of certain priority and emergency cases. We have now resumed the acceptance of visa applications. 

We would draw your attention to the fact that COVID-19 restrictions are severely affecting visa processing times. Priority and emergency applications may take several weeks to be processed. Once a decision has been made on your application, you will be contacted directly. In order to ensure that resources can be used to best effect, we ask that you do not contact the Embassy to seek updates on your application.
