Written answers (Question to Business)

An application for an employment permit by the named person will be considered should such an application be made, subject to the application fulfilling all relevant criteria. 

In order to apply for an employment permit a non-EEA national must have secured a job offer for an eligible occupation from an Irish registered employer.

Details on how to apply for an employment permit are available on my Department's website at the following link - https://dbei.gov.ie/en/What-We-Do/Workplace-and-Skills/Employment-Permits/.

In order to assist with the application process, the Department has produced a suite of information including various checklist documents, a ‘User Guide' to our online application system and a comprehensive FAQ Document which answers the most common queries received regarding employment permits.  All this information can be found in the Employment Permit section of my Department’s website at www.dbei.gov.ie
