Please note that in Ireland, the Department of Justice and Equality is primarily responsible for dealing with visa and immigration matters. They have responsibility for formulating visa policy, processing visas, and making visa decisions. Neither the Embassy nor the Department of Foreign Affairs perform any of these tasks. For technical visa queries, you may contact the Department of Justice and Equality at the following email address: email@example.com
The Department of Justice and Equality website, www.irishimmigration.ie, also contains useful information about visa and immigration processes and requirements. The old website, www.inis.gov.ie, is no longer updated, but contains some useful information.
If you are a citizen of a non-EU country, whether you need a visa or not, you will be subject to immigration control when you enter Ireland.
