You do not need a transit visa*

* You do not need a transit visa, subject to the information below, to travel through an Irish airport/seaport on your way to another destination.

When travelling

To transit through Ireland means you are only passing through an Irish airport or seaport to travel to another destination. To transit, you cannot pass through border control. If you pass through border control, you are not transiting.

As you are visa required to travel to Ireland but your nationality is not listed on the transit visa required list, you must check with your airline to see if you have to pass through border control.

If you have to pass through border control, you need a short stay or long stay visa to travel to Ireland.

When do I pass through border control?

Times you would pass through border control would include, but are not limited to:

  • Leaving the terminal building for any purpose, including in some cases having to transfer between terminals for a connecting flight.
  • In cases where you must collect your bags and check them in to your onward flight.
  • Transiting overnight - all Irish airports close at night and passengers are required to pass through border control.

Before you travel please check with your Airline if you have to pass through border control.
