Following the escalating situation in Ukraine, today (25th of February 2022) the Minister for Justice has announced the immediate lifting of visa requirements between Ukraine and Ireland.

The lifting of visa requirements unfortunately only applies to Ukrainian nationals and aims to support and streamline the swift exit of Ukrainian family members of Irish citizens, and family members of Ukrainian nationals living in Ireland.

It will apply as an emergency measure to all Ukrainian citizens travelling to Ireland. 

Ukrainian nationals who are considering leaving Ukraine and travelling to Ireland will no longer need a visa to enter the country.

Ukrainian nationals who travel to Ireland without a visa during this period will then have 90 days after arrival to regularise their immigration permission.
