The Irish Atypical Working Scheme is a new type of working scheme allows non-EEA nationals to come to Ireland to work on short term basis (between 14 and 90 days). This Scheme will apply to you if:

  • You will be employed in Ireland on a short term basis i.e. between 14 and 90 calendar days (inclusive);
  • You will be employed on a trial basis (not exceeding 90 days inclusive of date of entry to the State) with the option to get a permanent position which is on the Highly Skilled List and apply for a work permit/ green card;
  • You are a full time student, studying outside of Ireland and you would like to complete a paid internship in Ireland for up to 3 months.

This scheme will only apply to applicants who have been offered a position form an Irish-based employer. You may only lodge one Atypical Working Scheme application per calendar year. If you need to stay in Ireland longer, you may consider applying for an Irish work permit, green card or a study permit. The processing time for the permit under the Atypical Working Scheme is about 2-3 weeks. Once the permit is approved, you may also require a visa to enter Ireland, depending on your passport country. The visa processing time would depend on the relevant embassy’s processing times which can be up to 8 weeks.

Dependent family members will not be allowed to accompany you under this Scheme. They will need to apply in their own right. VisaFirst can help you arrange this also.

Hi Karen! I just wanted to write you a quick note to say thank you so much for all of the help that you and the Visa First team has provided to me over the past few weeks. Also, I literally JUST received my U.K. Youth Mobility Scheme Visa about 30 seconds ago, so I wanted to share the good news with you!

Dear Mike and Daisy, Just to let you know that I got my UK Ancestry visa today, valid for 5 years! It only took 5 days to be processed. You were very efficient and knowledgeable. Thank you so much for your friendly assistance. If I'm in your area, I'm going to bring you a box of chocolates :-) and will recommend your service.

Just a quick email to say thank you so much to Visafirst and Hanna in the London office for your help with my Chinese visa. Hanna was a star and kept me up to date all the time. I had already booked my trip to the States. I hoped I'd have my passport and Chinese Visa back in time (as I was off to China the following week) and thanks to Hanna I did. She called me Friday to let me know my Visa should be ready Monday AM and it was. I received my passport and went straight to the airport and all was good, then off to China next week. Great job and thanks again guys for such an efficient service.

Hi Miranda, I just wanted to let you know that I have arrived in Sydney ok and have got my bank card and everything sorted out. Everything was very stress free and uncomplicated with regards the banking which was great. Thanks for all your help. I have just found my P45 form from the job I just left in the UK so I will scan this to you tomorrow to see if I am entitled to any tax back. Thanks

Damien Dean has helped me to get my independent skilled visa granted (Australian) just within 3 months. He wasn't just very knowledgeable, he was supportive, helpful and very kind. He was always available to explain the different step of the process and to answer my queries. He is a fantastic person, whose professionalism is highly appreciated.
