Like other countries in the EU, Ireland demands that the non EU students apply for the student visa in order to study in the country. Ireland has a student immigration process that is divided into two parts, if you are enrolling in a degree programme which is being offered by a higher education institution in the country or if you are seeking to study in an English language non degree course.
Some of the documents that you need to keep handy while applying for a visa to study in Ireland include the following –
The holders of a certain category of study visa in Ireland are allowed to take up part time employment. If you get a stamp number 2 on your passport while registering with the local immigration officer, it would mean that you can take up any casual employment whose duration can’t go beyond 20 hours a week during the term of your session. When the session is on a break, you can work for up to 40 hours a week. This permission to take up work is valid only as long as you have the permission to stay in the country. In case you are not taking up such a course in Ireland, you aren’t allowed to indulge in any part time work or to participate in any profession or business.
The study visa given to you can only be used to enter the country once. If you leave the country and then return, you would have a get a re – entry visa.
