Irish Tourist Visa
A visa to Ireland is not as simple to obtain as in years gone by. The world is changing and the Irish Visa application system is no exception. As it tends to do, the evolutionary process has complicated the Irish visa application process.
It used to be that when an application was submitted to the Irish consulate in Bangkok it was forwarded on to the Irish Embassy in Kuala Lumphur, Malaysia. Now, however, it is sent directly to Irish Immigration in Dublin and, unfortunately, misunderstandings between Dublin’s immigration department and the Thai system have resulted in many poor decisions. It is therefore paramount to prepare the documents perfectly to avoid a refusal. You do not want to be left to pick up the pieces.
Many companies will no longer prepare Ireland visas because of this difficulty, but if you have the experience and have been dealing with them for many years then you can be confident of the correct result. That’s why Key Visa has no problem carrying on with preparing Irish visas.
The first visa issued by the Irish Immigration office is normally 3 months at a time and it is not advisable to apply for a longer stay the first time around. The visa application, which is now done online, can be accessed at the link below. After the application has been submitted, the waiting time for a decision is approximately 6 weeks.
