Citizens of certain countries who wish to pursue a course of study in Ireland must apply for a visa to enter Ireland before they travel here. (See 'Rules' for a list of those who do not require a visa to study in Ireland.) Since 30 June 2008 visa applicants in certain countries must apply online. (See 'How to apply'.)

Visa Documentation- Requirements

You will need to provide the following with your visa application. (Please remember, original documents are required and must be in English or accompanied by a notarized translation):

  • Letter of acceptance from a recognized school/college/university in Ireland confirming that you have been accepted on a course of study. This course of study must be full-time (lasting an academic year) and have a minimum of 15 hours per week study time.

  • Evidence of your academic ability to pursue the chosen course through the English language (unless it is an English language course).

  • Evidence that the fees for the course have been paid in full.

  • Evidence that you have enough funds (€7,000) to maintain yourself for the initial part of your stay.

  • Evidence that you or a sponsor have access to at least €7,000 for each subsequent year of your studies, in addition to the course fees for each of those years.

  • Evidence that you have private medical insurance

  • An explanation of any gaps in your educational history

  • Confirmation that you intend to return to your country of permanent residence when you leave Ireland.

Remember, the granting of a student visa to study in Ireland does not confer the automatic right of anyone to join or visit you in Ireland (whether they are a relative or not).

You will find more detailed information on the exact requirements for a student visa on the website of the Irish Naturalization and Immigration Service of the Department of Justice, Equality and Law Reform.
