On Arrival in Ireland

All non-EU citizens, whether visa-required or not, will be subject to ordinary immigration controls at the port of entry.

The length of stay permitted (including for those bearing a visa) is decided by an Immigration Officer at the port of entry, will reflect the purpose of the journey for which any visa was granted and will be noted on your passport.

Those bearing a visa should note that the validity period shown on the visa indicates only the dates between which the visa must be presented to an Immigration Officer at a port of entry - the validity period dates noted on the visa are not the dates between which you are permitted to remain in Ireland.

Those residing outside of the Dublin area should contact their local Garda station for the location of their local IRO. For further information visit garda.ie/angarda/gnib
