My partner is a Sri Lankan national with a Sri Lankan passport and we will be returning to Sri Lanka from the UK on December 30 via Dublin and Abu Dhabi. He has a full 5 year multiple entry visa for the UK. We will only be in Dublin airport for 1 hour whilst transferring between an Air Lingus and an Etihad flight. I have read elsewhere that if the transfer between flights is effected on the same day, an Irish transit visa is unnecessary.
Can anyone confirm this or confirm if a transit visa is required.
