Do I need a visa to fly into Ireland as a Non-EU citizen?
Most students who are not citizens of an EU country will need to apply for a single entry study visa to enter Ireland to study on the IMCP. Those students who have indicated that their country of citizenship is not an EU country will have been sent a letter of offer from RCSI which will allow them to start the application process for an Irish study visa.
All non-EEA students are required to have private medical insurance when coming to and residing in Ireland for the purpose of study. Please contact your sponsor or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries relating to medical insurance
