Visa costs Work Ireland

WHA visa cost

Irish Residence Permit (paid locally)


Please note:
Your working holiday visa (WHA) is paid in your local currency, directly to the Irish Embassy. On arrival in Ireland, you must also get an Irish Residence Permit (IRP). The team will assist you with getting an appointment, which at the moment can take around a month. The IRP essentially allows you to legally work and pay taxes in Ireland, and you won’t be able to start working until you have it. Confused? Don’t worry, once you’ve paid your deposit, we’ll take you through each step and support you on the ground.



With group start dates each month, the team in Dublin will help you sort all the essentials such as your Irish bank account, phone number and IRP appointment. Plus, they’ll hook you up with a WhatsApp group of travellers arriving in the same month as you. In the words of famous Irish pop band B*Witched, ‘Get a (social) life!’.
