Visas

EU citizens do not need a visa to enter Ireland. Visitors from non-EU countries may require a visa and must possess a passport valid for at least three months. 

Visa applications

Please see the exact visa requirements for your own situation. Participants requiring a visa should apply at a consular office or diplomatic mission of the Republic of Ireland in their home countries. The process can be initiated online. Please note that the visa application procedure can take months. 

The EAIE will issue visa invitation letters to participants from countries requiring a visa to enter Ireland, but only upon full payment of the Spotlight Seminar registration fee. To request your visa letter, kindly contact the EAIE Office by e-mail. Please note that costs may apply.

The EAIE does not give any further support to the visa application process. Obtaining a visa remains the sole responsibility of the participant. Regular cancellation deadlines apply, regardless of whether your visa was granted or not.
