Do you need a visa?
Students from some countries do not need a visa to come to Ireland. Contact your local Irish Embassy or Consular Office for further information about this. Check here if you require a visa to study in Ireland.
You can obtain an Irish Visa Application form from the Irish Embassy / Consulate in your own Country.
Irish Visa Application Process
If your application to DIFC is successful, we will send you a Provisional Offer Letter along with full details of fees owed. When your fees have been paid in full DIFC will issue you a Final Offer Letter. When you receive this Final Offer Letter you should apply for your study visa. Students wishing to apply for a study visa to attend DIFC have three choices:
Apply directly for an Irish study visa to your local Irish Consulate/Embassy
Please read carefully the Irish Student Visa Guidelines checklist to help you to prepare your application.
Apply through your local DIFC Representative Office
DIFC Head Office can advise you when completing your visa application. We can also refer to the Irish Department of Justice for complete Student visa requirement: www.inis.gov.ie
