  Optional Covid test  
  Mandatory quarantine  
  Proof of relationship     Optional Invitation letter     Optional bank statements  

We were separated for a whole year due to Coronavirus, since my trip planned for April was cancelled at the begining of the pandemic. I found the group "Love is not tourism" and later the group "Love is not tourism Mexico" and found a couple of girls trying to travel to Ireland however we couldn't find any person that had travelled before us.

So... I took the risk and planned the trip.
I knew there was the possibility of not being able to board the flight from Mexico, being stopped in Madrid or being rejected at immigration in Ireland, but everything went smoothly and I was able to meet him and stay with him for a month. I think that bringing relevant and organized information facilitate the process at immigration, even when they only asked for my flight plan, bank statement and the address I was staying at, the rest of the proofs helped during the interview.
