VISITING IRELAND FROM ABROAD

EU citizens who need urgent public hospital treatment whilst visiting Ireland will not have to pay hospital charges once they are able to produce their European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) and matching identification.

If you are an EU national and you are coming to Ireland temporarily, you should apply for a European Health Insurance Card before you leave your home country. This will enable you to receive emergency healthcare in a public hospital if you need it during your temporary stay in this country. If you start working in Ireland, you will be treated as 'ordinarily resident' for healthcare purposes, and although you may not have to show your EHIC, we advise you to keep it, in case you are required to produce it.

Citizens of EU or non EU countries who travel to Ireland specifically for healthcare services are charged an Economic Rate, which is subject to change.
