  • Will you stay airside or will you go through passport control at Heathrow for the transit? – EMotion Oct 4 '16 at 9:07
  • i would be stayin airside as i would have to board the next flight in an hour. – Vikas Oct 4 '16 at 9:10
  • @EMotion Absolutely irrelevant. Even if he did Need to clear immigration he could on the basis of a biometric Irish visa – Crazydre Oct 4 '16 at 10:25

It depends on your Irish visa.

According to this GOV.UK document, as an Indian national, you need a Direct Airside Transit Visa unless you have an Irish biometric visa (marked ‘BC’ or ‘BC BIVS’ in the ‘Remarks’ section).

  • that sounds helpful I shall do some research on this as well – Vikas Oct 4 '16 at 9:19
