10 grace period for visit visas

28752 Views 23 Replies 13 Participants Last post by  twonao
My 30 day visit visa runs out on the 5th of March so my first visa run is imminent. I've heard there is a "10 day grace period" and I was wondering if anyone has recent personal experience of doing the visa run with an expired visa? If so, what happened? Did you have to pay a fine? Were you waved through?

Thanks in advance.

So far it seems to still go on and although I haven't heard of anyone who says otherwise, sometimes an official can catch you out on it at random or so we are led to believe.
From experience it's 200 first day, 100 every day after but like I said, never heard of anyone getting caught on this but you have to count the days right.
30 days is 30 days, not 1 month which can be 28, 30 or 31 days. Many people get caught out because of that.
Unless the Irish count the days backwards, I would say you meant December not November haha! Just bring 1000 with you but don't worry they have ATMs there too
