I am an Indian having UK's Tier 2 Visa. I have spent a month in Sheffield, UK. Now I want to visit Northern Ireland, Belfast.

Can I make a short trip there with Tier 2 Visa. Or I will have to apply for seperate Tourists Visa of Northern Ireland?

    You used to be able to go on a 'Short trip', but I'm not sure if anyone is still flying them into Belfast ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Short_360 was common on the route) – Pete Kirkham Feb 2 '17 at 15:33

    @PeteKirkham: if they ever bring back internment, it will be for people who perpetrate puns like that... – smci Feb 2 '17 at 15:34

Northern Ireland is part of the UK and for you visiting there as far as visas are concerned should be no different than visiting Manchester (UK).

    @prashantzombade You just have to be careful that you don't leave Northern Ireland and enter the Republic of Ireland by mistake. The border is not always obviously marked and recognizable as an international border and you are not allowed to enter the Republic with a UK tier 2 visa. – Tor-Einar Jarnbjo Feb 2 '17 at 11:07
