The best things in life may be free, but the CAO system isn’t. The way you pay depends on whether you use the paper form or apply online.

If you are submitting a Paper Application, you should use the Application Fee Payment Form (which is supplied in your application pack) to pay in a Republic of Ireland bank. The bank will retain Part Three of the Payment Form and stamp Parts One and Two and return them to you. You keep Part Two for your own records, but you must staple Part One to your CAO Application form (as evidence of payment) and send it to the CAO with your application.

If you are applying online, you have to pay by credit card (Visa or MasterCard) or debit card (Laser).
