Predeparture Checklist

Yippeeee! Almost ready to leave! You have bagged that admission at the College/University, your Student Visa is ready, and your flight tickets are all booked. All that is left is to stuff all essentials in your backpack to start a new journey at the Republic of Ireland! But packing might be a bit of a traumatic experience. Toothbrush, towel, slippers, charger, what not! You may forget the most essential items or the smallest requirement whose absence might bring your blood to a boil. Here we give you a complete checklist of the most important items you may need for your big leap! Feel free to ignore all that is not required.

Health Checkup

Medical issues might be heavy for your wallet when you go to Ireland. This is important, especially if you have been diagnosed with any medical conditions. Visit your eye doctor, dentist and your physician and get a complete body check done if possible. Remember to take all your recent medical certificates, and signed prescriptions when you fly. Surf online and check if your medicines are allowed in Ireland, as they are a little strict on the pills, medical drugs and syrups approved in their country.

Tissue papers (For initial Use)
  • Carry your medications along with the signed prescriptions. You might need to show it at the airport security check.
  • Carry a few 1 or 2 Euros coins to bev utilised at the airport.
  • As soon as you reach Ireland, it might be difficult looking for grocery stores or get the items you need. Pack a few ready-to-eat stuff like Maggi, Pulav mix, soup powders, etc. which will be of great assistance in the initial few days.
  • Label all the homemade masala powders. These might be questioned at the airport security check.
  • No food items and water are to be carried in the cabin baggage. So, pack these in your check-in baggages.
  • Passport size photos are a little costly in Ireland, and hunting around for a photo studio might be a pain. Bring a few additional photos from India.
  • Your home at Ireland might mostly be equipped with yellow bulbs only. If you desire for white light, you can carry 25W CFL bulbs.
  • Carry enough masala powders which can last for at least six months. Depending on your place of stay, you may / may not have an Indian grocery nearby. Even if you do, masalas are a little expensive.
  • If you are diagnosed with any medical condition, please pack the specific medicines (which can last for at least two months). Also, consult your doctor about the alternative medicine you can purchase in Ireland.
  • If you wear spectacles, get yourself an additional pair. This is again not cheap in Ireland.

Often, we end up purchasing a lot more than required. Overspending on shopping is needless as we might not even use all of it when we are in Ireland. Shop wisely and save money & space only for your crucial items.

Travel Bags

There are three things you should be keeping in mind while looking for your travel bags:

  • Good quality : Seeing your bag tear/break down in between your journey is the last thing you wish.
  • Light weight : You do not want to buy hefty baggage and end up removing your essential items for compromising the weight limit.
  • Dimensions: Make sure that the dimensions of the bag and its shape match with the description mentioned by the airlines.

The Final Packing

Pack properly and weigh all your bags to make sure they do not exceed the weight limit. Leave an identity mark/luggage tag on each of your bags. Lastly, make sure all your valuables, important reports and documents, your passport, and your air-tickets are kept in the cabin baggage.

  • Get a proper trim/haircut done before you leave. It is quite expensive in Ireland 😉
  • Leave a copy of all your original records and documents at home with your family.
  • Write down/keep a copy of all the important contacts numbers (including your senior's/university phone no.) and the directions to your place of stay at Ireland.
  • Inform your University's International Student's Office about your date and time of arrival (a few days in advance). Ask them for an availability of airport pickup services.

Are your ready for Ireland in 2020?
