On-Line Appointments Service for Re-entry Visas
03 December 2015
The simplest and most convenient way to apply for a re-entry visa is by registered post using the Re-Entry Visa Application Form. Postal applications are normally processed within 10 working days and should always be the first option for applicants.
More generally, the position in relation to emergency appointments is that a limited number of such appointments are available each day to cover an unforeseen event such as the death or serious illness of a family member, and the applicant must be travelling within the next 2 days. When you attend your emergency appointment you will be required to show documentary proof that your application meets this definition. The cost of an emergency visa is €60 plus Administration fee of €100.
There is no need to attend the Public Office in person. However, if you wish to do so, an appointment must first be made using our On-Line Appointments Service by logging on to http://reentryvisa.inis.gov.ie.
You should also note that the visa that will issue under emergency circumstances is a single entry visa to facilitate your emergency travel only. The validity period will expire 5 days after the date of your return to Ireland as shown on your return flight ticket. All required documentation must be provided as required for a re-entry visa along with your travel tickets.

If you wish to travel to Ireland or pass through an Irish port in order to travel to another state you may need an Irish visa.
You may need a visa to travel to Ireland even if you live in Ireland.
A visa is a paper document affixed to a page of the holder's passport. It permits a person to travel to Ireland during the validity period stated on the visa. It does not guarantee entry to the State. An Immigration Officer at the port of entry has the authority to grant or deny admission, and to decide the duration of a person’s stay in the State.
INIS will not be held responsible for any cancelled or unused travel tickets in the event of a visa application not being processed by an applicant's intended date of travel or where an application has been rejected by the Department of Justice and Equality. As a result, we advise all visa applicants NOT to purchase or book travel tickets until their visa application has been approved, issued and received.
