Visa information

Depending on your nationality, you may need a visa to enter Ireland (click here to check whether you indeed do). The contact details of the Irish consulate in your country can be found here.

Keep in mind that, even though Ireland is an EU member, it is not in the Schengen Area. Even if you hold a Schengen visa, you still need to obtain an Irish one.

You can take advantage of the Short Stay Visa Waiver Programme. It allows holders of short-stay UK visas to travel from Britain to Ireland without a visa, and vice versa. Use this opportunity if you want to attend BIFD and visit the UK as well.
