New Free Visa Option for Minors in Ireland

Until further notice, the requirement for a re-entry visa for minors who are resident in Ireland has been suspended. Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who has legal permission to live in Ireland, and the accompanying adult must provide appropriate documentation to prove their legal guardianship. Individuals wishing to travel under this new policy should contact their airline to confirm that they will be allowed to board, as some airlines may not allow a minor to board without a visa. It is recommended that minors apply for an entry visa, which will be processed free of charge.
