Immigration to Ireland
Irish society has undergone great changes over the past
decade, Ireland mutating into new home, while, for many
decades, part of the population chose to departure for foreign
lands, often distant. The unemployment rate is currently
minimal, and it should be noted that more than 9% of workers
were not born in Ireland.
Citizens of EEA (European Economic Area, including all
European Union countries and Liechtenstein and Norway) do
not need work permits to conduct business in Ireland ( with
some exceptions: for example, if you are a citizen of Bulgaria
or Romania ). Residents of other countries (non-EEA) must
obtain the necessary permits.
The previous program visas and work permits, established
in 2000 to allow companies to recruit from outside the EEA,
has recently been replaced by a new system, whose purpose
is to allow the recruitment of highly qualified employees
that it is not possible to find in the EEA. This is considered
strategic for the proper development of the Irish economy.
The current system encourages migrants with a job in one
of the sectors experiencing shortages of skilled workers.
