Think it would be an Irish Tourist Visa and she'd apply from where she resides.Ramayan wrote:Thank you Wanderer. If you know could you please kindly let me know what visa will be required for my mother and where do we need to apply the visa please?
If she has a UK visa she can travel with the UK citizen to Ireland without a visa for up to 3 months, after which to remain in Ireland the UK citizen must be exercising treaty rights in Ireland. The normal mode of travel is by ferry from GB or via the Irish land border as this normally avoids contact with either airline check-in procedures or Irish immigration at arrival airport.Wanderer wrote:Think it would be an Irish Tourist Visa and she'd apply from where she resides.Ramayan wrote:Thank you Wanderer.

Hi Ramayan,Ramayan wrote:Thank you both el patron and ruthie.
Ruthie - do you know if my mother applies from India to Irish embassy in India to accompany myself in Ireland under the Directive 2004/38/EC then would there be any issues please?
The reason for asking is I would like to find work first in Ireland and also her six months stay in UK is coming close in this visit.
This won't be an issue. An EEA entry visa is not a condition for EU1. Please refer to Metock case. It doesn't matter which visa she uses to enter Ireland. Just to prove she is your mom, she is financially dependent on you, you get a job in Ireland. That's all that matters.Ramayan wrote: (Question 1) My fear is then at that point could Irish Immigration refuse stating that my mother applied for EU1 while entering Ireland on UK Visitor visa (which is allowed under the waiver programme I know) and she should have instead applied for entry into Ireland from India under Directive 2004/38/EC?
I don't get this question Ramayan. She won't stay in UK for more than 180 days in this case right? Basically they can't refuse the EEA family permit only because your mom still has a visit visa. But if she applied for this visit visa without your sponsorship at that time, you might want to show why she becomes dependent on you now.Ramayan wrote: (Question 2) Lets say Irish Immigration grant her EU1 around April 2015. And after that when I apply for EEA Family Permit to return back to UK - could the UK Immigration refuse stating that she should have returned back to India in Jan 2015 as on a visitor visa maximum period allowed is 180 days per visit?
