I uploaded a copy of my visa documentation. Why do I still have to complete an airport visa check?

Immigration authority rules require Ryanair to carry out manual visa checks in the airport before permitting passengers that require a visa to board our flights. To protect the safety and security of your documents, airport staff will not have direct access to the uploaded picture of your visa. Our airport staff will carry out a manual inspection of your visa documentation and compare this to the copy of the visa uploaded to your myRyanair app. This check will be carried out at the check-in desk and you will be asked to show the copies of your passport and visa saved in your booking.
