Visas

A visa is a certificate in your passport or travel document that shows you’re authorised to land in a country. However, there may be a number of other conditions you need to meet before you’ll be allowed to enter that country.

In Ireland, the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS), an agency within the Department of Justice and Equality, is primarily responsible for dealing with immigration and visa matters.
