Critical Skills Employment Visa Ireland

Here at Visaworld Dublin we are experienced in the organisation of a wide range of Visas for use in travelling and working abroad or for entry into the Irish workforce.

One of the most popular visa requests we process is that of the Critical Skills Employment Visa – formerly known as the Irish Green Card. This visa is assigned to people with skills that are required for a specific sector of work in Ireland in order to counteract a shortage of skilled employees in that sector.

If you are a national from a country which is not in the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland, in general you will need an employment permit to work in Ireland. The Critical Skills Employment Visa permit is issued by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation who require a number of documents from the applicant in order to issue the Green Card Visa. This can be quite a lengthy process and requires trips to government offices and the submission of multiple documents and forms.

Our team at Visaworld in our Dublin city centre office are experienced in the specific application process of the Critical Skills Employment Visa and are up to date in all requirements and aspects of the application process. We can provide you with a fast-track visa application service that saves you the hassle of dealing with administration yourself – whether you are an Irish company wishing to provide Visas for your employees or a non-EU national looking to work in Ireland, we can organise everything for you.
