Minister of State for Business, Employment and Retail Neale Richmond TD has announced significant changes to the salary threshold rules for Employment Permits in Ireland.
𝐊𝐞𝐲 𝐇𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐥𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐠𝐞𝐬:
Eligibility for General Employment Permits will be expanded to include 32 additional occupations 🌐.
The salary threshold for most General Employment Permits will increase from €30,000 to €34,000 in January 2024 💼.
11 new occupations will be added to the Critical Skills Occupations List 📈.
The salary threshold for most Critical Skills Employment Permits will increase from €32,000 to €38,000 in January 2024 💡.
These changes will make it easier for you to recruit skilled workers from outside of the EU. You may now be eligible for an Employment Permit for a wider range of occupations, and the higher salary threshold will make it more attractive for skilled workers to come and work in Ireland.
