Re-entry visa requirements for minors have been suspended with immediate effect and until further notice. The new rules apply to children under the age of 16 who are resident in Ireland. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian with legal permission to reside in Ireland. The adult accompanying the child must also provide appropriate documentation to prove they are the legal parent, or guardian, of the child in question. Persons seeking to travel under this policy should first consult their airline to confirm that boarding will be allowed. An airline may be unwilling to board a minor without a visa and cannot confirm that boarding will be possible. Then, it is advised that the minor applies for an entry visa, which will be processed free of charge.
