Visa Waiver Scheme for Ireland

A unique opportunity to combine a visit to the UK with a visit to Ireland without the requirement of a separate visa. With many inexpensive flights between Ireland and the UK this is an opportunity that should not be missed.

Irish Minister for Justice Alan Shatter has introduced a visa waiver scheme where visitors with a valid permit for the UK will not need a separate visa for Ireland.

It is the first time that Ireland has contemplated such a programme and as such it is proposed that it be pilot tested from July 1st of this year to October 2012.

Nationals of 14 countries including China, India, and parts of Eastern Europe and the Middle East who obtain a visa to enter the UK on a short-term visit of up to 180 days and want to travel from there to Ireland will not require an additional visa for Ireland.
