I am a non-EU/EEA citizen. Why is my Ryanair app asking me to upload visa documentation?

All non-EU/EEA citizens with a restricted boarding pass will have the option to upload their visa documentation to their myRyanair app. Uploading your visa documentation is voluntary and all passengers are still required to complete a visa check in the airport prior to departure.

This option ensures a record of the required visa documentation is maintained, necessary for potential challenges from immigration or border control at the destination. It will demonstrate that appropriate the documentation was presented at the point of departure, to prevent fines and penalties associated with transporting a passenger lacking the necessary documents, and to avoid criminal enforcement in case of failure to present the correct documents on arrival.
