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.

Dear Karen, Thank-you for all your help. We have received the documents and all the information is correct. We have both been really happy with the speed and service that we have received from both yourself and the Visafirst team, and will definitely be back in contact with any future travel / visa needs. Thanks again, have a great week, Michael Espana-McCartney

Hi Debbie/ Declan, Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart! My boys are jumping around and hugging me haha. All the stress and uncertainty has now been worth it. I have just rang Mary and explained to her we dont need the 457 visa now and she is fine. Happy for us and there is still a job there for me if I want it. Champagne in the fridge for dinner this evening. Thanks again for all your hard work. Kind Regards, Janet

I just wanted to let you both know that today I received my UK YMS visa. I went to the Consulate General here in Duesseldolf, Germany, last Wednesday and so getting it back today was much quicker than I expected. Thanks for all your help with my application, and thanks to Visa First - much appreciated.

I couldn't fault Visa First they looked after all aspects of my Visa and made what I thought would have been a lot of organising seem as easy as going for a walk. They always rang back if I had a question and they were attentive to all my queries, keep up the good work. I would recommend Visa First services to anybody.
