How to Move to Ireland
Ireland – a mystic island filled with ancient castles, cathedrals, beautiful green landscapes and friendly strangers who greet you: “Top of the morning to you!”. Significant in its rich history and culture, Ireland is the preferred touring destination for many tourists from all over the world. While history points out that many Irish people emigrated from Ireland to other countries, still there are many foreigners that are immigrating to Ireland, after falling in love with the country and everything it has to offer. So before relocating, here are a few guidelines for you to consider.
Paperwork is an absolute necessity when it comes to relocation. Whether you are an EU citizen, an American citizen, or a student coming to study in the most prestigious universities of Ireland, check the Irish Naturalization and Immigration Service website for their information and legal issues regarding entry requirements to Ireland, including visas. Be detail oriented. You don’t want any surprises to pop up at the least convenient time.
In order to open a bank account in Ireland, you must be over 18 and you must provide a valid ID and proof of address. If you are not an EU citizen, remember that Ireland’s currency is Euro, so make all the necessary calculations when sending, receiving and organizing your money internationally.

After completing all the necessary paperwork, it’s time to find a professional moving company to Ireland. SDC International Shipping is here to help.

Get Emergency Contacts

Take the Leap
With that being said, now is your time to take the leap and move to Ireland. Its rich history and culture are very special and unique. That is why it is hard not to fall in love with this country. Go ahead and find a place to stay there. Maybe you will be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of some leprechauns strolling down your garden.
