A New Irish Visa Application and Permit System Introduced for Immigrating Nurses

October 2017, 16
EMAIL  Print A+
The government of Ireland is scheduled to launch a new process for work visa application, meant for nurses of non-European Union /EEA areas, who possess an Employment Order in the country. It requires such nurses to submit an application for entering Ireland through Atypical Working Scheme.

Irish work visas also available

An employer/worker can submit an application seeking the General Employment Permit of Ireland. This job-offer is linked to work permit, allowing the applicants to work within Irish borders in a position that pays €30,000 annually. They can submit an application for the Permit of Irish Critical Skills Employment, which is a permit/ job-offer to work within Irish borders in a position that pays €60,000 annually.

Atypical Working Visa Scheme conditions

This scheme is meant for work visa applicants to gain a position to work which is uncovered by other employment rules, including a few industry sectors, experiencing skills shortage. The process put forth will require the nurses from non-EU/EEA areas to:

  • Finish a necessary aptitude test or program for clinical assessment
  • To receive an identification number by Registering with the Professional Nursing Board Ireland
  • Obtain a permit for employment through their employer
  • Undergo Registration with the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service

This process for nurses will also apply to EU-trained nurses, who are ineligible for direct registration, based on the EU Directive 2005/36/EC, presented by the European Parliament governing the recognizance of professional qualifications.

  1. The applications forwarded must include required documentation, employment data (proof of contract) for two years, and a valid passport for the term of the contract, €250 paid as a fee.
  2. Subsequently, the eligible and qualifying applicants get a letter of approval which has six months validity.
  3. Successful applicants will take Test of Aptitude /Training Program, to complete a Clinical Adaptation and Assessment Program or Royal College of Surgeons Aptitude Test, approved by the government.
  4. The next step, after this, is to obtain registration from the Irish Nursing and Midwifery Board and get an identification number.
  5. This is followed by, acquiring a permit of employment given by an employer. Here the employers offering jobs to non-EU/EEA nurses must file for an employment permit application.

The new work visa system norms do not allow non-EU/EEA nurses to change their employers, or the working location, till the term of their employment contract is over. The employment visa permit when issued, leads the nurses to register with INIS.

These terms are meant for strict adherence.

Demand for Irish visas is increasing

The UK is no longer favored by the people. The Government there plans to take more restricting steps in future. We can help all the applicants interested in Atypical Working Scheme, the Irish Employment Permits, Critical Skills Employment Permit, for the professionals, who are highly skilled and have good qualifications/experience.
