Passport, visa and health information/requirements
The information in this section is valid for IRISH Citizens only. Non-IRISH Citizens should consult the Embassy of their destination country and the DEPARTMENT OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS regarding any special documentation for the countries they are visiting or for return to IRELAND. It is your responsibility to check with the applicable Embassy or Consulate to see whether the destination(s) that you are visiting requires a visa, especially if you do not hold a passport marked "IRISH Citizen". If you fail to do so, you will be solely responsible for any cost, loss or damage which you or we incur as a result of your failure.
It is also important to remember to include all transit points of your journey, which may also require you to obtain a visa. Please note that many countries require that your passport is valid for six months beyond the period of your stay. Some countries apply different rules and you should contact the Embassy or Consulate of your destination for relevant current information.
It is vital that you ensure that your passport is legible and intact, any sign of damage could result in a refusal of carriage or entry into your country of destination. If you hold AN IRISH passport and require information in respect of the validity of your passport, the procedure and time required to apply for a passport or renew an existing passport, the regulations in respect of minors, or if your passport has been lost or stolen, you can contact the DEPARTMENT OF FOREIGN AFFAIRES help line on +353 1 671 1633 or LoCall 1890 426 888 , Out of hours emergency service tel. +353 1 478 0822 or on the internet at WWW.DFA.IE
It is your responsibility to obtain the appropriate visa for your destination(s) and any applicable transit point. If you require information in respect of current visa requirements, procedure and time required to apply for the applicable visa, you should contact the DEPARTMENT OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS. Their telephone number is Tel: (01) 4780822 and their website address is WWW.DFA.IE. Please note that specific requirements for specific countries can be complex and subject to change at short notice.
Children not already included on a valid IRISH passport will need to hold their own passport if they are to travel abroad. Children who were included on a passport before 5 October 1998 may continue to travel with the passport holder until: 1. The child reaches the age of 16; or 2. The passport on which the child is included expires; or 3. The passport on which the child is included is replaced or an amendment results in the issue of a new passport
The name on the passport must match the name on the ticket, otherwise you may not be able to travel and insurance may be invalid. If, after booking a holiday but before travelling, any member of your party changes their name, e.g. as a result of getting married, we must be notified immediately so that we can endeavour to make the necessary changes to your holiday documentation.
It is important that all travellers to the United States take note of the following:
A visa will be necessary for entry to the United States of America (USA) unless passengers are eligible under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). The VWP allows holders of full IRISH Citizens Passports who have the right of abode in IRELAND to complete a Visa Waiver Form and submit this on arrival. You must ensure that you comply with all USA Government requirements as per the Visa Waiver Form before confirming your booking.
All IRISH passport holders, including children, travelling to the USA under the VWP will need their own machine-readable passports (MRP). This means that anyone without a MRP, including children who are currently on a parent's passport, will need a visa to travel to the USA. An IRISH Passport is machine-readable when the white strip at the foot of the personal data page (at the back of the passport) bears two lines of print. If there is no white strip, or the white strip is blank, then the passport is not machine-readable.
If you have a serious communicable disease of public health significance including HIV you are not eligible to travel on the Visa Waiver Program, and must possess a valid visa for entry into the United States.
If you have ever been arrested or convicted for any reason in any country, even if the arrest did not lead to a conviction including driving offences, you may require a visa and should consult the US Embassy directly (details are below).
For further details on entry requirements for the USA and the VWP (as there are some restrictions and requirements change from time to time), check the US Embassy website: www.usembassy.org.uk or the DEPARTMENT OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS Office: WWW.DFA.IE
You should seek advice on any vaccinations and precautions that may be compulsory or recommended from a health professional ¦ a GP, practice nurse, pharmacist or travel health clinic ¦ ideally at least 8 weeks before you travel. Further travel advice can be found on www.fitfortravel.scot.nhs.uk and www.nathnac.org. Information about how to get medical treatment abroad and how to get reduced cost, and sometimes free treatment in Europe can be found in the NHS leaflet ¦Health Advice for Travellers¦.
Each of the cruise suppliers has reserved the right to cancel or change itineraries at any time. Viva Voyage is not responsible in the event that a cruise supplier chooses to do so. The travel supplier may choose to provide compensation for an itinerary change or cancellation depending on the circumstances. However, there is no guarantee that the travel supplier will offer any compensation in the event that they cancel or change an itinerary.
The DEPARTMENT OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS may have issued information about your holiday destination. You are advised to check whether or not such information has been issued on the Internet under the address WWW.DFA.IE prior to travelling.
If something goes wrong
If a problem occurs while you are traveling, you must inform the relevant supplier (e.g. cruiseline, hotel, airline). If the supplier cannot resolve the problem to your satisfaction, you should contact us on 1800815207 so that we are given the opportunity to help. If your complaint is not resolved at the time, you must notify us at the earliest opportunity and email us at email@example.com within 28 days of your return to quoting your original booking reference and giving all relevant information. Failure to notify us within this time period may hinder our ability to resolve your complaint and/or investigate it fully and, as a consequence, any right to compensation that you may have could be prejudiced.
