    My husband, my nephew and I are New Zealand citizens and are planning to travel to Ireland later in the year to attend a family wedding. My nephew was imprisoned for an assault approximately 13 years ago. He has had no other trouble with the law since that incident. Would that conviction/imprisonment prohibit him from entering Ireland?

    It can be confusing , so let me clarify questions.. also if you are generally travelling in Europe

    1) The United Kingdom is England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland , the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands
    2) The Republic of Ireland is an independent country.. own laws NOTHING TO DO with UK
    3) The United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland both belong to the European Union, the common trade agreement
    4) Ireland uses the Euro as its currency. The UK uses its own pound
    5) Neither country entered the Schengen agreement. You need to satisfy UK requiremts to enter UK, to satisfy Irish requirements to enter Ireland and to satisfy Schengen requirements to enter the majority of the EU. Google SCHENGEN to check exactly which countries if you want to tour Europe too
    6) Best advice is CHECK EACH COUNTRY'S REQUIREMENTS with its embassy
