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 and processing of visa applications. 

The Minister for Justice, Helen McEntee TD signed an order on 22 December 2021 reversing the temporary visa requirements introduced in November 2021 for some Southern African nationalities to support Covid-19 public health measures. Nationals of Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho and South Africa are no longer entry visa required for Ireland.
