Ireland in Russia

 

Dear friends of Ireland in Russia,

As the Ambassador of Ireland to the Russian Federation I would  like to say hello and introduce myself to you. My wife Anne and I are delighted to be in Moscow, and very much looking forward to our time here.

I know that the Irish community is very active throughout Russia, and the countries of Central Asia to which I will also be accredited (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan). I want to assure you that we will do our very best to be as responsive as possible to your requests as they arise, particularly in the consular field. In this regard, do of course feel free to contact us at any time.

I believe that your experience, from the perspective of living, working and doing business in Moscow and beyond, is invaluable to us. I hope that we can continue to work closely with you, and that we are able to make a real impact on Russian–Irish relations during my time here.

The site contains useful links to other websites of organisations which specialise in aspects of relations between Ireland and Russia, including in the areas of trade and tourism.  I would refer visitors in particular to the website of Enterprise Ireland which is the Irish Government Agency specialising in trade promotion and whose Moscow office is situated within the Irish Embassy.

The Embassy is particularly keen to assist Russian travellers to Ireland.  We are hopeful that the recent re-commencement of a direct air connection between Russia and Ireland will increase the flow of visitors in both directions. I would refer our Russian visitors to the website of Tourism Ireland which is the Irish agency specialising in tourism promotion.

The Embassy is determined to provide an efficient visa processing service to assist travel to Ireland.  The Visa Office aims, subject to the fulfilment of visa conditions and available resources, to process visa applications within 10 - 15 working days.  Business visas are processed within 5 - 8 working days. Details of the visa process, are available here. In addition, a new Visa Waiver programme has been launched, which means that citizens of certain countries may travel to Ireland on a valid UK General C Visa subject to certain conditions. For details of the Visa Waiver Scheme, please click here.

Eoin O'Leary,

Ambassador of Ireland, Moscow
