18 Jun 2019

If you are an Indian passport holder, and are applying for a study visa to fly to Ireland, please read.


28 May 2019

It has come to our attention that some students have only paid €6,000 towards their fees when the total fee is over €12,000. Only those students who are applying under the Approval-in-Principle Scheme need to pay €6,000 and then they pay the remainder once they confirm their results with the Education Provider in Ireland. The visa will only be issued when they have paid the full fees.

Full fees are expected to be paid by all other students when they make their visa application. The Visa Officer will only assess study applications where a student has paid at least €6,000 towards their fee if it is under €12,000. If less than €6,000 has been paid in these cases the visa application will be refused. If the fee is more than €12000, the student must pay at least half of the total fee amount or the visa application will be refused.
