Visiting Ireland?

Vietnamese citizens need a visa to visit Ireland, as do people from Cambodia and Laos. For a short holiday in Ireland, these can be applied for at the Embassy and are usually ready in a couple of weeks. Ireland is a popular tourist destination in Europe, with 7.6 million visitors from overseas in 2014, and Irish people love to welcome new visitors to Ireland.
