Dublin is a welcoming place and there are tons of reasons to live here. Luckily, new arrivals from many countries won’t need an Irish visa to move here or an Irish driving licence to drive here. For those that do require them, following official procedures doesn’t have to be a headache. The process is actually pretty straightforward, but you’ll have to do some paperwork.
However, if you do encounter any problems along the way, there are plenty of resources and organisations that can help. Many employers, universities and colleges in Dublin have staff who can assist with visa applications.
It’s also a good idea to bookmark the Citizen’s Information website. This is a publicly funded resource which provides reliable information on everything from airport security through to Irish law. Then, there’s the Department of Justice’s Irish immigration website. This features a calculator for checking your eligibility for residence in Ireland, as well as updates on the latest visa decisions.
But, for now, we’ll provide you with an introduction to organising a visa, getting on the road in Ireland and dealing with Dublin’s local authorities.
