Ireland Volunteering Visa
You must apply for immigration pre-clearance to enter the state as a Volunteer before you travel to Ireland. Please note that an applicant must be resident outside the State when making an application for permission to come to work as a Volunteer for a period longer than 90 days. You will not be permitted entry to the State by an Immigration Officer at the Border, for the purpose of working as a long stay Volunteer, unless you can produce a Pre-clearance Approval Letter.
Note: Non-EEA nationals not requiring a visa must have prior approval from the Department of Justice and Equality, Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) under this Scheme to enter the State as a Volunteer. If your application is successful, you will be granted a letter of approval. You must present your letter of approval to the Immigration Officer at the point of entry on arrival in the State, who will verify its contents by reference to the approval number contained in your letter. You will not be permitted entry to the State for the purpose of working as a Volunteer unless you can produce the prior approval letter obtained before you travel to the State.
Non-EEA nationals requiring an entry visa, with Pre-clearance application successful, must then apply for a visa online.
