AIP for Indian Student
Under Approval in Principal Scheme (AIP) , applicants for study visa from India, who have been accepted onto a University course, Institute Technology course or QQI (Quality and Qualifications Ireland) approved course, can apply for a study visa without having to pay the requisite college fees in advance.
Fees need only be paid when the visa application has been approved. Once evidence of the Electronic Fee transfer (EFT) had been submitted to the Visa Office, Irish Embassy, New Delhi, the visa will be issued.
Please check with your Irish Education provider as to whether or not your course is QQI approved. This is also detailed on the Internationalisation Register of the Department of Education in Ireland.
