The Relocation Bureau can arrange support to employers with the preparation and applications of employment permits. The following are some general guidelines:
- In order to work in Ireland a non-EEA National, unless they are exempted, must hold a valid Employment Permit. The Government has introduced a number of changes relating to the different types of employment permits that may be granted, including broadening the highly-skilled eligible occupations list in order to reform and modernise Ireland’s employment permits system as part of a plan to make Ireland the top global location for ICT skills and confirm our status as the internet capital of Europe.
- Any persons wishing to enter the State, whether visa required or not, are subject to the usual immigration controls at the port of entry. Therefore, all relevant and supporting documentation, including the original employment permit, must be available for inspection by an Immigration Officer. Entry to the State is always at the discretion of the Immigration Officer.
