Quick links to information on visa categories and other helpful information including Visa Fee, VFS Service Charge and Processing Time can be found on the Visa Wizard page on this website.

Effective from 13 March 2020 the Ireland Ministry has introduced mandatory courier returns to limit the spread of COVID-19 outbreak and also contribute to other measures we have already put in place to protect our staff and customers. The measure is valid for a temporary period, until the risk of Covid-19 has significantly reduced.
As a precautionary measure and in order to avoid the spread of the novel Coronavirus/ Covid-19, all applicants visiting the Visa Application Center are required to have their body temperature checked at the entrance. Those who have a fever will be asked to leave and return another day when their health improves.
