The Irish government has removed Russia and Belarus from its Short-Stay Visa Waiver Program.
Additional Information: Irish authorities will not recognize Russian passports issued in occupied foreign regions, including Ukraine and Georgia, when issuing visas or for those crossing borders. However, individuals holding Russian passports issued in controlled regions can still apply for asylum and remain entitled to Temporary Protected Status.
BAL Analysis: Ireland joins a number of other European countries that have suspended or limited certain visas and permits for Russian and Belarusian nationals. Employers and employees are reminded that actions taken as a result of the invasion of Ukraine may change with little or no notice. BAL will continue to follow the global response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine and will provide information as it becomes available.
