About the Ireland Intra-Company Transfer Permit

General Information

The Ireland Intra-Company Transfer permit facilitates the transfer of foreign nationals in senior management and key personnel positions to the Irish branch of an overseas or multi-national company for periods of between three and 24 months.


You can apply for this visa if:

  • This permit entitles an employer to hire a foreign national for the duration of the assignment in Ireland
  • The Ireland Intra-Company Visa is strictly limited to senior management, key personnel, or those undergoing a training program

In order to apply for this visa you will be required to provide a number of documents. These may include:

  • The overseas company: The foreign branch of the organisation in question must be legitimate and engaged in substantive business operations in the foreign country in question
  • Link between companies: The Irish company must have a direct link with the overseas company by common ownership e.g. either one company must own the other, or else both must be part of a group of companies controlled by the same parent company. Documentary evidence of this link may be required
  • Employee's role: The employee in question must be crucial to the running of the company and must fall into one of the categories of senior management, key personnel or trainee. The employee must be earning a minimum annual salary of €40,000 or €30,000 for personnel undergoing a training programme. The employee must have been working for a minimum period of six months with the overseas company prior to transfer
  • The Irish company: The company in Ireland must be registered with the Companies Registration Office, the Registrar of Friendly Societies, or the Registrar of Business Names. It must be trading and engaged in substantive business operations in Ireland. Proof may be requested to show that the company is trading. A simple "representative presence" in Ireland will not be sufficient. At least 50% of the employees have to be EEA nationals, unless the company is a start-up
