Immigration Act 2004 (Visas) (Amendment) (No. 2) Order 2022


SI No. 364 of 2022

This Order amends the Immigration Act 2004 (Visas) Order 2014. It removes the exemption from the requirement to be in possession of a valid Irish visa when landing in the State for a stay of up to three months for holders of travel documents issued by EU/EEA States party to the 1951 Geneva Convention relating to the Status of Refugees. This followed a government decision to temporarily suspend the operation of the Council of Europe Agreement on the Abolition of Visas for Refugees (Council of Europe) for a period of 12 months.
