Ireland Work Visas demand has reached a ten year high as per the latest reports. 1520 permits were approved in October 2018. This is the highest number of Ireland Work Visas approved in any month in the last decade.
In 2018, the overall applications for Ireland Work Visas have increased by 30% in comparison with 2017. Ireland has the system of permits for non-EU immigrants who intend to work in the nation.
Ireland is focusing on attracting highly skilled overseas workers in recent years. This is for those who possess expert designations in specific industries as per the demand.
Meanwhile, gaps have been reported in low-skilled jobs even as the nation is approaching full employment. The Department of Business has advised that changes must be made to the visa system. This includes introducing a Seasonal Work Visa, as quoted by the Independent IE. It has also reported changes to the 2-yearly review of the scheme. This is to ensure that the Visa system is more responsive to the dynamic needs of the labor market.
The issue of changed Visa system was discussed at the Oireachtas Business Committee by Clare Dunne, Department of Business. She said that the increased demand has resulted in delayed processing of applications. The ways to address the issue are being worked out, added Dunne.
The wait times are 5 weeks for trusted partners who use the permits system on a regular basis in place of 2 weeks. It is 11 weeks for standard applications instead of the normal 4 weeks.
Billy Kelleher Fianna Fáil TD questioned whether in post-Brexit scenario Ireland would face more challenges in the labor market. This is if the UK looks forward to Ireland to fill gaps that may result in absence of flow of EU workers.
