Entry via Republic of Ireland

Entry to the UK via the Republic of Ireland

If you are subject to immigration permission, you should avoid entering the UK through the Republic of Ireland.

If you do enter the UK through the Republic of Ireland, you will not have the correct immigration permission to register at Newcastle University, as there are no immigration controls between the UK and the Republic of Ireland. This means that students with entry clearance will not have their visas activated on arrival.

Students who have not obtained entry clearance before travelling to the UK, and who arrive with visitor leave for the Republic of Ireland only, will not be allowed to register at Newcastle University.
