Ireland Cliffs of Moher

Do Moroccan citizens need a Tourist Visa for Ireland?

First things first: Yes, Moroccan passport holders must have a visa to travel to Ireland.

The same applies to minors/children under 18. A parent or legal guardian must apply for the tourist visa on their behalf. Apply together easily through our platform by clicking ‘Add another person’ during the application process.

We’ll review the applications and submit on your behalf to the government. Each applicant will receive a separate decision.

What is the Ireland Tourist Visa for Moroccan citizens?

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

When applying for this visa, it’s important for Moroccan passport holders to clearly state the purpose of travel to Ireland. You can do the following activities with this visa, as long as you’ve indicated it upon applying:

  • Tourism

  • Visit family or friends

  • Get married

  • Get medical treatment

  • Do a short-term educational course

Whether planning a holiday, visiting loved ones, or traveling to Ireland for other activities, clearly communicating your intentions allows the immigration officer to assess your eligibility and process your application accordingly.

For details about applying for different visas, such as a work visa or residence permit, go to the Irish government’s website.

Types of Ireland Visas available for Moroccan citizens

Ireland offers two types of tourist visas for Moroccans wanting to travel to the country:

  • Single-entry visa: You can 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.

Easily apply for this visa on our website or through our user-friendly app!

  • Multiple-entry visa: This is a visa for travelers who wish to visit Ireland more than once within the validity period, for example, if you want to visit Northern Ireland on the same trip.

If that is the case, remember you will also need a UK Visa (in addition to the 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, as mentioned above.

Unfortunately, we currently do not offer multiple-entry visas. Contact the Irish Embassy or Consulate near you to apply for one.

Documents required for Moroccans applying for the Ireland Tourist Visa

Moroccan citizens must submit the following visa documents for the Irish Tourist Visa application:

  • Original passport: Your Moroccan passport must be valid for at least 6 months beyond your planned departure date from Ireland and contain 2 blank pages for stamps.

  • Two passport-size photos: Use our affordable and convenient digital photo service to get yours from home.

  • Proof of enough funds: This includes bank statements showing your income and savings and a letter explaining any large transfers to or from your account.

  • Application letter: It must clearly state the purposes of your visit to Ireland, such as a holiday, visiting family and/or friends, or any other authorized reason.

  • Proof of intention to return to your home country: 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 Morocco.

  • Proof of accommodation: Confirmation of bookings for accommodation and/or proof of address from a host in Ireland.

  • Sometimes, the Irish Visa office may request you to have travel/medical insurance for the application. Please note that having travel/medical insurance is a requirement to enter Ireland in any case.

  • If you’re applying for the Ireland Tourist Visa in another country, you must prove you’re a legal resident there.

  • If you have been previously refused a visa, or have been deported from any country in the past, provide the details and documentation.

Other documents supporting the purpose of your visit

Family/friends visit:

Financial Ireland Visa requirements for Moroccan citizens

The funds required for the Ireland Visa application are not specified. However, you must prove that you have the financial means to cover your flights to Ireland, daily expenses, and planned activities according to your stated travel purpose.

It’s also advised to purchase travel health insurance to show you’re covered for emergency medical assistance.

If you are self-funding your trip, include bank statements and supporting documents of the last 6 months. Here are the essentials that should be mentioned:

  • They should be original documents issued on official bank paper. If you provide a printed internet statement, it must be certified/stamped by the bank to prove its authenticity.

  • Your name and address must 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 or savings account.

  • It must show all incoming and outgoing transactions for the entire period.

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

If a friend or family member in Ireland will be financially supporting you for your trip, you should estimate the amount they will be spending and specify what expenses they will cover:

  • They must prove their financial ability to support you by providing bank statements, payslips, and a letter from their employer. This applies to all friends or family members financially supporting you in some way.

By providing the necessary financial documents, you’ll increase your chances of a successful Ireland Visit Visa application!

Tips for a successful Irish Tourist Visa application in Morocco

Plan ahead: Start at least two months in advance to allow sufficient time for gathering all supporting documents, completing the application form, and meeting all visa requirements.

Complete the application correctly: Fill out the visa application form with accurate and up-to-date details. Always check for mistakes before submitting the application.

Financial evidence: Submit proof of sufficient funds to cover your travel plans to Ireland. If someone else is supporting you, include their evidence as well.

Document authenticity: All supporting documents, like bank statements and employment letters, must be original and issued by the appropriate authorities. Certified copies/official letterheads may be required.

Strong ties to your home country: Show ties to your home country to assure the visa officer that you have enough reasons to return home after your visit to Ireland.

Common reasons for Ireland Tourist Visa refusals for Moroccan citizens

Some of the most common reasons for visa refusals can be easily avoided with some preparation. Here are the major mistakes applicants make:

  • Insufficient financial resources or proof of financial ability to cover expenses in Ireland.

  • Not providing convincing evidence of your ties to Morocco, which may raise concerns about your intentions to return after your visit.

  • Missing or incorrect documents, or failure to meet specific requirements. This will result in the rejection of a visa.

  • History of immigration or visa violations, such as overstaying the time permitted in a country. Not disclosing this during your application can negatively impact the application outcome.
