Time to get organised because this is where all the real work begins. I would advise that you start getting together all of your documents you need for the work permit before you accept a position so that when you have your offer letter you are ready to submit it. Depending on the type of work permit you are applying for, it can take anywhere from a few days to a many months if there are no issues.
Items you will need:
- Passport – Your current passport must be valid for at least 12 months after your proposed date of arrival in Ireland.
- Long form certified birth certificate
- College transcripts and Diplomas
- 6 months of bank statements
- 2 passport sized photos
Average Permit Processing Times:
Critical Skills Trusted Partner Initiative – 2 days – 2 weeks
Critical Skills – 90 days
General Employment & Others – 4-6 months
