WORK IN IRELAND, GET IRELAND WORK VISA
An Irish work visa or an Irish employment visa is required to arrive in Ireland to work. Here’s a look through your preparation and travel to Ireland to join a workforce and build a career.
Preparing to travel
First, you need to apply for immigration permission with the purpose of working in Ireland. It must be received before you apply for an Ireland work visa.
Another requirement to apply for an employment visa is to have a job offer from an Irish employer. It could otherwise be an employment contract too. You will be permitted to enter Ireland to work only in occupations that need you to be highly skilled in the job. Or else, you should be skilled in an area of work that has a shortage of workers in Ireland.
After getting immigration permission to work, you must apply for a long-stay Employment visa (Ireland work visa). This type of visas is called D visas. A visa is essential to enter Ireland.
At the Irish border, you will have to prove that you have a reason that’s valid to enter Ireland. You will have to present the proofs to an immigration officer at border control.
To make your point, you must have your original contract of employment, your passport, and many other documents deemed necessary.
After entering Ireland
After you enter Ireland, you must file an application for permission to stay in Ireland. You must also register with immigration prior to the date displayed by the stamp placed in your passport.
