To show your connection with the island of Ireland and evidence of personal identity, please provide any ONE of the following:

  • Irish Passport.
  • Irish/UK driver’s licence (showing an address on the island of Ireland).
  • Irish/Northern Irish bank statement (showing an address on the island of Ireland).
  • Official College ID (issued by any educational institution recognised by the Department of Education).
  • Department of Social Protection issued Public Services Card.
  • Correspondence from Ireland’s Revenue Commissioners (showing your PPS number).

If proving your connection to Ireland with a utility bill showing an address on the island of Ireland, please note that you will also be required to include proof of personal identity (e.g. passport, driving license).
If you cannot provide any of the above, you will need to provide separate evidence of your connection to Ireland and evidence of your personal identity.
