Dublin Airport arrivals without passports

3,285 people arrived to Dublin Airport without a valid identity document in 2023, down from 4,968 people in 2022.

It is an offence under the Immigration Act 2004 for a non-national over 16 to land in the State without a valid travel document*

I asked why no prosecutions were taken. Offences are punishable by up to 12 months in prison or a €3,000 fine.

*The law applies to all non nationals except those from the UK and those arriving from the UK.
