Visa Information

Everyone entering Ireland must have a valid passport, or in the case of European Union Member States, a national identity card. Visas are required for some countries. Delegates should check with their local Irish representation. The Department of Justice, Equality and Law Reform has primary responsibility for Ireland’s immigration and visa policy. Citizens of some countries, including China, India, Nigeria, Iran and Russia usually require an Irish visa. A Schengen visa is not valid for Ireland as Ireland does not belong to the Schengen area. Neither is a UK visa valid in Ireland. Please refer to https://www.dfa.ie/travel/visas/visas-for-ireland/ for details. You may request an invitation letter from Conference Partners, once you have registered and paid the conference fee in full. Please be sure to apply well in advance, as the process may take several months. A valid driving licence is required to drive in Ireland.
