Immigration News

In the year ending 11th December, 2013, 46% of Ireland Work Permits were granted to Citizens of non-EEA nations, most of which belong to the area of Technology. The list of top companies who hired employees from non-EEA countries is topped by Google. The tech giant has granted 146 Ireland Work Permits to employees from non-EEA countries or their dependents/spouses. Google was followed by Tata Consultancy Services who granted 138 Ireland Work Permits. The list included other tech companies such as Dell, IBM, Wipro and LM Ericsson.

A Department of Jobs, Enterprise, and Innovation spokeswoman said that in terms of percentage of ICT graduates of all third-level graduates, Ireland Government is committed to lead Europe by 2018, and is also committed to boost the significant job-creation in the ICT sector in the coming years.

The spokeswoman added that though the education system is important in delivering these targets, the system of issuing Ireland Work Permits also plays a critical role.

Till 11th December, 2013, 13% of all employment permits i.e., the 2nd highest number of Ireland Work Permits were issued in the health sector, and half of these were issued to Indian nationals.

Till 5th December, 2013, 91 permits were issued to those who were either hired by the Health Service Executive (HSE) or to the dependents/spouses of its employees.

Spouses and transfers

Permits covering intra-company transfers and Spousal Permits respectively made up 14 and 15 per cent of the issued Ireland permits. In the year 2013, more than 500 Ireland employment permits were refused.

According to the Department of Jobs, Enterprise, and Innovation, in 2011 and 2012, people with work permits only filled 5% of the total number of IDA jobs created. 4,007 Ireland Employment Permits were granted to non-EEA Citizens in 2012.
