Ireland is Inviting More Indian Students, Tourists
In the last 2-3 years, Ireland has witnessed a rise in Indian students to 2,000. However, the minister said that the country aims to reach a target of 5000 in the coming years by offering various benefits to the students, including post-study work option for 1 year.
Ambassador of Ireland to India, McLaughlin, said that the drop in value of Euro makes Ireland one of the competitive countries to go for study.
Apart from attracting students, measures are in place to attract tourists as well. Recently UK-Ireland introduced a single visa option for Indian tourists allowing them to travel to two countries on just one visa. It has reduced the visa fee, processing time and documentation to a great extent.
There are various investment options in Ireland for established businesses and also for startups. One such option is Ireland Startup Entrepreneur Visa. It requires low investment and is worth exploring. Then are plenty other opportunities available for mutual growth and benefit of the countries.
