Visas

A visa is a form of pre-entry clearance which allows for travel to Ireland. It does not guarantee permission to enter Ireland. Permission to enter Ireland is granted by an Immigration Officer at the port of entry

In Ireland, the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS), an Office of the Department of Justice and Equality, is primarily responsible for dealing with immigration and visa matters.
