What is the Ireland Tourist Visa for Egyptian citizens?

The Ireland Visa, also known as the short stay 'C' visit (tourist) visa, is an official document designed for travelers who wish to explore the wonders of the Republic of Ireland.

When applying for this visa online, it is important for Egyptian passport holders to clearly explain the purpose of travel to Ireland. The visa covers various travel purposes, including:

  • Tourism

  • Visiting family or friends

  • Getting married

  • Seeking medical treatment

  • Participating in short-term educational courses

Whether planning a relaxing vacation, reuniting with loved ones, or pursuing other activities, effectively communicating your intentions enables the immigration officer to assess your eligibility and process your application accurately.

For info about an employment visa or residence permit, check the Irish government’s website.

Do Egyptian citizens need a Tourist Visa for Ireland?

Yes. As stated above, Egyptians must have a visa to visit Ireland. If you’re traveling with children under 18, a parent or legal guardian must apply for the tourist visa on their behalf.

Easily apply for multiple people through our platform by clicking ‘Add another person’ during the online application. We’ll double-check and submit each application carefully. Note that each application will receive a separate decision.

Types of Ireland Visas available for Egyptian citizens

Ireland offers two types of tourist visas:

  • Single-entry visa: You can only visit Ireland once with this visa. It should be used within 90 days after issuance and it allows a stay of up to 90 days Per Entry in the country.

This visa can be easily applied for on our website or through our app.

  • Multiple-entry visa: This is a visa for travelers who wish to visit Ireland more than once within the validity period.

If you’re planning to also visit Northern Ireland from the Republic of Ireland, you must get both a UK Visa and an Irish Visa. If you want to travel back to Ireland to catch a flight back to Egypt, you’ll need a multiple-entry Irish Tourist Visa.

Unfortunately, we currently do not offer multiple-entry visas on our platform. Reach out to the Irish Embassy or Consulate near you to apply for one.

Documents required for Egyptians applying for the Ireland Tourist Visa

Egyptian citizens generally have to gather the following visa documents for the Irish Visa application:

  • Valid Egyptian passport: It must be valid for at least 6 months beyond your planned departure date from Ireland and it should have 2 blank pages for visa stamps.

  • Passport photograph: If you don't have one, use our affordable and convenient digital photo service. You will need to provide two photos.

  • Proof of enough funds: Bank statements demonstrating your income and savings and a letter explaining any large amounts of money being transferred to or from your account.

  • Application letter: Write a cover letter clearly stating the purpose of your visit to Ireland, such as a holiday, visiting family and/or friends, or any other reason.

  • Proof of intention to return to your home country: Provide supporting documents demonstrating strong ties to your home country. This can include recent payslips, a letter from an employer, proof of enrollment in a college or university, proof of property ownership, a rental agreement in your name, or details regarding close family members living in your country.

  • Proof of accommodation: Include reservations for accommodation and/or a proof of address from your host in Ireland.

  • Sometimes, the Irish Visa office may request travel/medical insurance for the application. Please note that having travel health insurance is a requirement to enter Ireland, regardless of whether it’s asked for during the approval process.

  • If you’re applying for the Ireland Tourist Visa in a country other than Egypt, you must present proof that you’re a legal resident there.

  • If you have been previously denied an Ireland Tourist Visa or another visa, or have been deported from any country in the past, provide the details and documentation.

Other documents supporting the purpose of your visit

According to your specific travel purpose, the following documents are required:

Family/friends visits:

Financial requirements for Egyptian citizens

The amount of money required for an Ireland Visa application is not specified. However, you want to prove that you have the financial means to cover your flights, daily expenses, and planned activities according to your travel purpose.

It is also recommended to have travel/medical insurance to show you can pay for emergency medical assistance.

If you are self-funding your trip, include up-to-date bank statements and supporting documents of the last 6 months. Here are the key details that should be stated:

  • The bank statements should be original documents issued on official bank paper. If you provide a printed internet statement, it must be certified/stamped by your bank for authenticity.

  • Your name and address should be stated on the statement, matching your other supporting documents.

  • The statement must display your bank account number and what type of account it is, such as a checking/current account or a savings account.

  • It should show all incoming and outgoing transactions.

  • Bank statements from a savings and deposit account must be accompanied by an original letter from your bank on their official letterhead, confirming your ability to withdraw funds from that account.

If you have a friend or family member in Ireland who will be financially contributing to your trip, you should estimate the amount they will be spending. Specify what expenses they will cover, such as the cost of plane tickets:

  • They must demonstrate their financial stability by providing bank statements, payslips, and a letter from their employer. This applies to all friends or family members supporting your visit.

By providing the necessary financial documents, you can improve your chances of a successful visa application.
