Re: Stamp 1 to Stamp 4

Is your CSEP application under process or concluded? If you manage to get CSEP then your case will be very easy as repatriation division will likely issue you a stamp 1. If it gets refused as a result of you not having permission you might write to or email repatriation division with your qualificat...

Re: Stamp 1 to Stamp 4

Thanks raj1936,

They took around 1.5 years in total. I kept sending them my educational and other progress in the state after every 6 months. I had heard that they take less time in making a decision if you request a stamp 1 to apply a work permit (which I did in my submission).

Re: Stamp 4 support letter

I applied when I had worked 20 months on the permit but as per the rules the application opens after you've worked 21 months so I don't think usually the decision is granted before that.

Maybe they have what they need after the correspondence with you. Hopefully you will get it.

It may not be the right thing to ...

Re: Side project with Stamp 1

Not 100% sure but I think if you are on critical skills permit stamp 1 you need permission from the minister if you are registering a business in Ireland. Youtube and other online incomes may be ok as long as you pay tax on these.

Plus I'd say this will proba...
