Explore the Emerald Isle with Euros in Your Pocket!
“Work & Travel Ireland” represents a chance for U.S. students and recent graduates to explore the country for a summer or up to a full year, with the ability to take on paid seasonal work to help fund the experience. You can apply for either a four or twelve month visa and take on different jobs and take travel breaks in that time. Most participants work in or near Dublin, Galway or Cork, however, you are more than welcome to travel and work in any of Ireland’s 26 counties. Ireland’s a mystical place, full of amazing places to see and experience. And of course you will enjoy the Irish friendliness and “craic” as they would say.
To be eligible to apply;
- You must be 18 years of age or over
- Be a US Citizen
- Have good health
- Have travel medical insurance for the duration of your travels
- Be a current student or recent graduate (apply within 12 months of graduation) of an accredited post-secondary education program.
- Possess support funds of at least $4,000 to support yourself until you get a job.
The Visa process varies, we advise allowing 8-10 weeks, however it could take as little as 2-3 weeks.
