ESVO 2019
 

Passports - visitors to Ireland from other countries require a passport.

Visas - some visitors to Ireland from other countries may require a visa.  More information can be found on the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Ireland website (click here) and we would advise reviewing this information in advance of travelling.  
 
If you require a visa you may require a letter confirming your booking from the conference desk once you have registered and paid in full. Unfortunately, we cannot issue letters prior to registration being completed and payment being received in full. If you have booked your accommodation through the conference registration system, this information will be included in your letter. We would advise that you book and pay for accommodation for the duration of your stay and if you are booking accommodation elsewhere that you request confirmation from your lodging and include it with your visa application.
 
Please note that visa applications can take 8+ weeks for Ireland. For further information on visas please see the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service website (click here).
 
You should also note that a Schengen visa or UK visa is not valid for travel to Ireland.
