As to visa procedure, a Brazilian student is supposed to apply for a student visa after being accepted to an Irish educational institution, having enough sums of money to stay there, and having their health insurance. A student visa also allows students to work part-time while school is in session, up to 20 hours a week, and full-time during holidays. This is an excellent opportunity for students to get more practical experience, such as employment practice, and earn a living.
