IMPACT – MEDIUM
The Irish government resumed and added countries to the Short-Stay Visa Waiver Program on Oct. 31.
Additional Information: The visa waiver program does not apply to travelers with an Irish visa wanting to enter the U.K. Hong Kong and Macao passport holders do not need a visa to visit Ireland. Travelers from Kuwait, Oman and Qatar cannot use the U.K. Electronic Visa Waiver (EVW) to travel to Ireland from a third country. With an EVW, travelers must fly directly to the U.K. and then directly to Ireland to be able to enter the country without an Irish Visa. More information on the Short-Stay Visa Waiver Program can be found here.
BAL Analysis: Foreign nationals from the aforementioned countries can once again travel to Ireland for short trips if they are already in the U.K. on a short-stay visa.
