Destination: Ireland

Ireland lets ordinary passport holders from 85 countries travel to it without a prior visa.

Visitors to Ireland must obtain a visa from one of the Irish diplomatic missions unless they come from one of the visa exempt countries.

It is one of the visa policies in the European Union, the others being the visa policy of the Schengen Area, the visa policy of the United Kingdom, the visa policy of Gibraltar and the visa policies of the French outermost regions. While Ireland is a member of the European Union, it has an opt-out from the Schengen border-free area, maintaining instead a Common Travel Area with the United Kingdom.
