Visit the Embassy of Ireland’s website for the most current visa information.
You must have a valid passport to enter Ireland, but U.S. citizens can enter visa-free for tourism or business stays of up to three months.
There is no minimum passport validity for U.S. citizens entering Ireland. We recommend you have a passport that is valid for the duration of your stay, evidence of sufficient funds to support your stay in Ireland, and a return airline ticket.
An increased number of U.S. citizens have been refused entry or granted a limited stay because they failed to demonstrate their travel intent to Irish immigration officials at the Port of Entry. You may be asked to provide evidence of sufficient funds to support your stay in Ireland regardless of your purpose of travel. For any travel other than tourism, please ensure you obtain the appropriate documentation prior to travel. You can find more information at the Irish Naturalization and Immigration Service website or by contacting your nearest Irish Embassy or Consulate in the United States.
We cannot intervene on your behalf when applying for a visa or residency permit, nor can we assist if you are denied entry into Ireland.
