New regulations have been introduced in Ireland to allow the spouses and dependants of Irish Critical Skills Permit (Green Card) holders easier access to employment in Ireland.

These new arrangements mean spouses and dependants (de-facto/ civil partners) of Ireland Green Card holders can apply for an employment permit to work in Ireland in any occupation. Under the new regulations, the employer does not need to undertake a labour market needs test for spouse/dependent work permits.

Permit Validity

Ireland Spousal Permits, or permits for dependents, are normally issued for the period up to the expiry date of the permit of the existing work permit holder, and can be renewed later.

Requirements

To be eligible for a work permit in Ireland, the spouse or dependant must be legally resident in Ireland on the basis of being a dependant of an Irish Critical Skills Employment Permit holder who must have one of the following:

  • The applicant's spouse must have a valid Ireland Green Card Permit;
  • The spouse/ dependent that is to apply for a Spouse/ Dependent Employment Permit must be legally in Ireland, on an entry/ tourist visa;
  • The spouse/ dependent of the Green Card holder must have a valid job offer from an Irish employer;

The Green Card holder must still be working within the terms of their employment permit.

To apply for a spouse work permit, you need a job offer from an employer registered and trading in Ireland.
