NON-REFUNDABLE VISA APPLICATION PROCESSING FEES:
MULTIPLE-JOURNEY €100.00 [1 ]
In certain circumstances a further administrative fee may be payable to the Irish Embassy or Consulate.
Postal or courier charges may also be levied in some cases and information in this regard, and on the fee in your local currency, is available from your local Irish Embassy, Consulate or Visa Office.
Some applicants are not required to pay a fee. This includes visa-required spouses and certain family members of EEA citizens (including Irish nationals) provided that proof of the relationship is submitted with the application.
In addition, applicants from some countries are not required to pay a fee. As this changes from time to time information in this regard should be sought from your local Irish Embassy, Consulate or Visa Office. Fuller information on visa fee exemptions can be viewed on the website of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade www.foreignaffairs.gov.ie
Please note that the Visa fee is an administration fee which covers the cost of processing your application. This fee cannot be refunded if your application is refused or withdrawn.
Applications submitted to the Visa Office, Burgh Quay, Dublin:
If you are residing in Ireland and are applying for a Re-Entry Visa, the fees are as outlined above and must be paid by Bank Draft or Postal Order.
If you are applying for a visa from outside Ireland:
If you are applying for a visa from outside Ireland and your online application has been directed to the Visa Office in Dublin, you must submit a Bank Draft (in Euro) drawn to an Irish Bank.
No other currency or method of payment is accepted in Dublin.
[1 ] Issuance of a multiple journey visa is at the discretion of the Visa Officer. If you apply for a multiple journey visa but are only granted a single journey, the difference in cost cannot under any circumstances be refunded to you.
It is not the general practice of the visa office to issue multiple-journey visas unless a compliant travel history to Ireland in the recent past is evident.
In general, for a short stay visa, if two previous Irish visas are held with all conditions observed (e.g. applicant did not overstay or work illegally) an application may be made for a multiple journey visa. Again, issuance of a multiple journey visa is at the discretion of the Visa Officer.
It should be borne in mind that the purpose of a multiple journey visa is to allow a person to travel to Ireland on a number of occasions during the dates shown on the visa, for short trips only. It is not permitted to use this category of visa to bypass immigration rules governing residency in the State – i.e. it is not possible to remain in Ireland for a period of 90 days and then seek to re-enter the country for a further period of up to 90 days. Any abuse of this may result in future applications being refused.
If you are applying for a Long Stay (D Type) visa to work, study or join family members you should apply for a Single Journey only.
