An Irish Work Permit is an employment permit which allows a non-EU citizen to work legally in Ireland for an employer in a particular occupation. The permit is initially granted for two years.
To be eligible for an Ireland Work Permit,
there needs to be a job offer from an employer registered and trading in Ireland.
Either the employee or the employer can apply for this Ireland work visa, and the application will need to include evidence that it has not been possible to find an EEA or Swiss national to fill the position. Visit Am I Eligible
for more information.
It is only possible to obtain a Work Permit for Ireland for certain occupations or salary levels:
- Where the annual salary (excluding bonuses) on offer is €30,000 or more the Ireland Work Permit can be considered for occupations other than those which are contrary to the public interest.
- Work Permits will only be considered for a very limited number of occupations below an annual salary of €30,000.
- There are a number of occupations for which work permit applications will not be considered - please see Am I Eligible for more information.
