Apply for Ireland Work Permit visa

The work permit can be issued to the applicant for the occupation specified on the permit. It is issued for an initial period of two years and can be renewed for a further three years. The work permit can be issued indefinitely after a period of five years.

Ireland prefers to work with a system based on job offers in skills shortage areas rather than quotas or points based systems, such as the UK. Ireland has set up a system divided into the following categories:

  • Green Card Permit Scheme
  • Work Permit Scheme
  • Intra-company Transfer Permit Scheme
  • Spouse/Dependent Permit Scheme
  • Third Level Graduate Scheme

In general, non-EEA nationals must have an employment permit to work in Ireland. EEA and Swiss nationals do not need an employment permit. Under the  Employment Permits Acts 2003–2014 there are 9 types of employment permit including a General Employment Permit, a Critical Skills Employment Permit and a Dependant/Partner/Spouse Employment Permit. You can read about other types of permit in our overview document on employment permits.

Since 1 October 2014, the Employment Permits (Amendment) Act 2014 has changed the previous employment permits system. There are now 9 different types of employment permit with new application forms for each type and changes to the criteria for issuing employment permits. The Act also provides that a foreign national without an employment permit, who took all reasonable steps to get one, can take civil action against their employer to compensate them for work done or services rendered.

General Employment Permits are issued by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation. Either the employer or the employee can apply for a permit which must be based on an offer of employment. Permits are issued to the employee and include a statement of the employee’s rights and entitlements. An employee with an employment permit has all the employment rights of Irish or EEA citizens for the duration of the employment permit.
