Traveling to Ireland from Ukraine..
Подорож до Ірландії з України

This section provides information for people who have family in Ukraine, or for people in Ukraine who plan on traveling to Ireland, or have recently arrived here.

You should go to a reception hub in the airport or port when you arrive. Otherwise, you can get help at a Ukraine Support Centre. These centres are currently in Dublin, Limerick and Cork. They can help you get somewhere to stay and help you to apply for social welfare (financial help).

You can also read about: supports for Ukrainians in Ireland.

You can use Google Translate to read this page in Ukrainian or another language (please note: this uses machine translation and may not be a fully accurate translation of the page)


Citizens of Ukraine do not need a visa to travel to Ireland..
Громадянам України для поїздки в Ірландію віза не потрібна.

You also do not need proof that you have a COVID-19 vaccine, and you do not need to take a COVID-19 test before you arrive.

If you do not have a current passport, you can use another form of identification to travel to Ireland (for example, national ID card, expired passport or birth certificate). The Irish Government has asked airlines to accept these documents.

If you are travelling with family members who are not Ukrainian citizens, they may need a visa to come to Ireland.

You can read frequently asked questions from the Irish immigration authority, called Immigration Service Delivery (ISD), for visa and immigration information.

The Irish Refugee Council also has information on coming to Ireland in Ukrainian.


Immigration and international protection..
Імміграція та міжнародний захист.

When you arrive in Ireland, you should go to the reception hub. Currently there are reception hubs at Dublin Airport and Rosslare Port. Ukraine Support Centres have also opened in Dublin, Cork and Limerick (see 'Ukraine Support Centres' below).

You should give your details and you will get a letter confirming that you have residence in Ireland under the Temporary Protection Directive from the reception hub in Dublin Airport. Staff can also help you to get somewhere to stay if you need it, and help you to access financial support (money).


Temporary Protection Directive..
Директива про тимчасовий захист

The EU, including Ireland, is using the Temporary Protection Directive. This means that you can work and access services and benefits without making an application for international protection (refugee status). This applies to:

  • Ukrainian citizens who lived in Ukraine before 24 February 2022

  • People who had refugee status (or another type of international protection) in Ukraine

  • Stateless people who lived in Ukraine before 24 February 2022

  • Family members of the people above if they were living in Ukraine before 24 February 2022

It also applies to people who had a permanent Ukrainian residence permit who lived in Ukraine before 24 February 2022, and who cannot safely return to their countries.

You will get permission to live in Ireland for one year under the Temporary Protection Directive. Your permission may be extended after that. You will get a letter confirming that you have residence in Ireland under the Directive.

I have not received a temporary protection permission letter

If you did not get a permission letter at the airport or port you arrived at, you can get it at the Ukraine Support Centre on Cork Street, Dublin 8 (see ‘Ukraine Support Centres’ below). You cannot currently get a permission letter from the Ukraine Support Centre in Cork or Limerick. Arrangements are being put in place to provide permission letters at those offices. We will update this page when this happens.

If the Irish Government gave you a place to stay (in a hotel for example), immigration officials will visit your accommodation and they can give you the permission letter.
