Do I need a Visa?

A visa is a document that allows a person to enter or transit through a country.  If you are coming to Ireland through another country (for example you need to stop in the UK, Germany, France, USA, etc. on your way here) it is important that you check with the appropriate embassy to see if you need a transit visa.

If your passport is from one of the countries on this list, you do NOT need a visa to enter Ireland! If you do not need a visa to enter Ireland you will still need to have your letter of offer of a place at Maynooth University ready for inspection by Immigration at the port of entry. Please ensure you have your letter with you in your carry-on bag when boarding your airplane!  Please check full visa information on the Irish Naturalisation & Immigration Service website.

If your country is NOT on the list, please read the instructions below very carefully.
