Inward Visits

The Outreach Office develops tailor-made programmes to meet the needs of the many delegations requesting visits to the Northern Ireland Assembly.

The Assembly receives a large number of requests, primarily from Embassies, post-conflict countries and universities wishing to visit Parliament Buildings to discuss and share experiences with Northern Ireland politicians. 

In 2015, the Assembly organised and hosted 68 visits, and 811 people, from countries such as Egypt, Bahrain, Mozambique, and Australia to name but a few.  To request a visit to the Northern Ireland Assembly please complete and return the Visits Enquiry Form.
