Securing permission to work in Ireland as a non-EEA national can be a complex and difficult process. There are a number of employment permit schemes available for example a General Employment Permit, Critical Skills Employment Permit or Dependent Partner / Spouse Employment Permit to name a few.
We advise both employers and potential employees on the best option to secure a permit to work in Ireland for their specific needs. We prepare detailed employment permit applications and appeals to the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation and assist clients throughout the application procedure. There have been recent changes and updates in this area of immigration law so it is crucial that business owners and applicants are familiar with developments.
There are two main changes coming into place from the 1st January 2020.
Changes to the remuneration threshold for a Critical Skills Employment Permit;
The advertising period requirement of the Labour Market Needs Test.
