My husband and I are traveling to the UK for a wedding and then want to travel to Ireland to visit. I read up on BIVS and it looks like if I have a UK visa, I can travel to Ireland for a short stay. However, I think I might have a big of a snag.
I bought flights to Dublin and then separately bought flights to the UK because it was cheaper.
I arrive in Dublin at 6:45 AM on the 26th of August. I have a flight from the same Airport at 1:45 PM to Edinburgh. Do I need an Irish Visa if I am not leaving the airport but getting on another flight to Edinburgh?
We plan on returning to Dublin on the 30th. Does the BIVS apply since I should have a UK visa for the same time period?
