I have been living in Germany for almost 3 years now and would like to visit Dublin in October. I am a student and have the resident permit for Germany. I have read a post that since my intention of travel is not a school excursion I might have to apply for a short term visiting visa for Ireland.
What are the procedures to apply for a travel visa? Is it possible to apply online or are there provisions to get an on arrival visa in Dublin? I have Ryanair flying to Dublin from my city and I would really like to go to Ireland.
