Hi Maestro1981,

Probably you we're not allowed to board due to a missing visa stamp (on the boardng pass), which usually can be obtained before going through airport security. Only low-cost airlines (Ryanair, Wizz Air, etc) have such check for flights within the Schengen area.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL NON EU/EEA PASSENGERS

Irrespective of a passenger's visa requirements, all non EU/EEA citizens must have their travel documents checked and stamped at the Ryanair Visa/Document Check Desk before going through airport security.

Non EU/EEA passengers must do this in order to ensure compliance with immigration authorities. We reserve the right to refuse travel, if there is a failure to comply with this requirement.

If you have been denied boarding and require immediate clarification please call +353 1 2480860 to speak to one of our team (subject to opening hours).

Wizz Air, another low-cost airline in Europe has similar regulations

if you hold non-EU travel documents, you need to present yourself at the check-in counter to have your documentation checked and your boarding card stamped
