Immigration News

In the year ending 11th December 2013, 46% of Ireland employment permits were granted to non-EEA citizens in the area of technology to fill the skills-shortage in the country.

3,674 Ireland employment permits were issued to citizens from nations outside Switzerland or the European Economic Area (EEA) in 2013. The EEA constitutes Norway, Liechtenstein, Iceland and European Union member states.

Citizens of Switzerland do not need an Ireland employment permit to work in Ireland.

According to the data from the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, out of the total number of people who were issued the Ireland employment permits, 1,679 permits, i.e., 46% were in the IT sector.

Similarly, the largest percentage of Ireland employment permits granted to Chinese and Brazilian citizens were also in the tech sector at 37% and 47% respectively.
