I honestly did not know that I required a visa to visit Ireland. I have a UK visa and a Biometric Resident Permit. I was asked a few questions by the immigration officer and was granted entry but my passport was stamped “Visa Warning given”. How long should I stay in Ireland? (My intended stay is 70 days) Is there anything I need to do? Will I be allowed in the UK when I go back?

    Did you tell the Immigration Officer how long you plan to stay? When does your UK visa expire?

  • Were it to happen to me I'd assume you're supposed to leave the country at the earliest opportunity, and are allowed in just to arrange for transport out.

    I'm not sure why you tagged this as "transit visa". That's what you use for a very short stay, i.e. where you are only in Ireland for a layover. 70 hours would be fairly long for a layover. 70 days is a lot longer than a typical vacation (~21 days) so you need to make sure that there are no bigger misunderstandings here.

  • What did the immigration officer say? Did the officer really just stamp your passeport with this "visa warning given" stamp and not explain anything?

I would contact the Immigration Department at Burgh Quay, Dublin and ask them to clarify how long you are allowed to stay in Ireland. Otherwise I think it’s just guesswork if no Irish time limit is stamped in your passport. (They have the capacity to put appropriate stamps in your passport if that is required).
