I'm preety sure that you do. I seem to remember people going to Dublin for the exam complaining that they didn't have much time to get a visa. :(

No, it depends on what country your passport is from. HSMP is related only to the UK immigration service and will not have any power to get you into Ireland.

Check this website, if you country of origin is not one of those listed as being exempt then you need a visa.

you will definitely need a visa if you are flying into dublin on a non ec, aus, can, us passport.

if you enter from northern ireland by train you may be asked for the visa, same applies for by road from ni ,

i am told they have become a bit strict due to problems with refugees.

my advice would be to apply for a visa but it will take some time i guess as they do not issue it in a week usually

you need to apply for Ireland visa atleast a week in advance. You have sufficient time but need to act promptly.

dear sims, it would seem that u r going to ireland for DCP.

You definetely need a visa, u can apply by post- they need 10 days to process it, or u can go to the embassy in london in person, without any appointments between 9 and 12 in the morning.

Hope this helps, i know this because i am doing it as well.
