I am going to apply for Ireland as a family member of an EU citizen. Previously I visited Australia. As Australia provide e-visa,there is no visa proof attached on my passport. Do I need to attach the print of that Australian e-visa with my visa application for Ireland.

  • Does the Irish consulate provide instructions that ask for copies of previous visas to other countries? If not, don't attach it, unless there is a particular reason why you think that specific visa is relevant evidence for the purpose and circumstances of your proposed visit to Ireland. – Henning Makholm Jan 12 at 14:15
  • No Irish consulate does not ask for it. but they ask for previous visa refusals. As I have visa refusal for UK short term study. I am worried if my this visa refusal may affect my Irish visa application. So I want to attach Australian visa as a proof. Will it affect my visa application or not? – Fatima Khan Jan 12 at 14:25
  • You want to attach an Australian visa "as a proof" of what? – Henning Makholm Jan 12 at 14:25
  • as a proof that some other country has already granted me visa and I did not breach the rules and returned to my home country before termination of my visa. – Fatima Khan Jan 12 at 14:30
  • How is "some other country has already granted me [a] visa" relevant for adjudicating your new visa application? You seem to say that you're applying for a visa as a family member of an EU citizen. In that case it does not matter at all what any other country has or has not done. You need to demonstrate that you are in fact a family member of an EU citizen, and anything that does not further that goal will not prove anything other than your incapability of following instructions. – Henning Makholm Jan 12 at 14:48
