Ceisteanna (133)

Éamon Ó Cuív

Ceist:

133. Deputy Éamon Ó Cuív asked the Minister for Justice and Equality his plans to change the conditions applying to a stamp 0 visa for persons that wish to retire and live here, particularly from the United States of America, in order that the thresholds of income and savings would be reduced to a realistic level in view of the statement issued by him in autumn 2017 in relation to the matter.

A review of the policy to grant an immigration permission to qualifying Non-EEA Retirees who wish to retire to Ireland has recently been completed, and a revised scheme for non-EEA retirees is currently undergoing interdepartmental consultations. I hope to launch the revised non-EEA retirees scheme in the coming months. The full details of the scheme will be made available at that time.
