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.

I hope INIS communicate this to immigration departments / airports / airline staff of other countries as in some countries (at least) the airline staff and / or immigration desks check the stamp on your passport and IRP card before you exit and board a flight to Ireland.

Re: Promotion/Salary increase for CSEP holders

It can only be an issue if the new employment is significantly different to the one for which the permit was obtained. For example if someone got a permit to work as an IT expert but later switched to a totally different field.

Re: Promotion/Salary increase for CSEP holders

Probably not. As long as your role is within the scope of your permit (employer and category of skills etc) you don't need to apply a new permit while working for the same employer.

No. When someone is on section 3 application they have lost all stamps and residency status. I was working in the company for almost 7 years (had permission when I got the job - before losing status) and luckily the company did not open my file while I was on section 3. I informed them when I got th...

I was told by most solicitors that if you are working during that process, they can't penalise you for it as you have to put food on the table. If asked you can give them the job details. When I was in the process I provided my contract details, pay slips, P60s and bank statements etc. But I think p...

If your registration was done in the Burgh Quay office then you can email them with title "undelivered IRP Card" at burghquayregoffice@justice.ie

Include full name, Registration number, Nationality and date of birth. They usually reply within few hours.

Re: Marriage to non-EU/EEA (non-visa-required) spouse in Ireland

Oh sorry :| . I think I misread your post earlier and thought your spouse was an EU citizen.

Once you get married both of you should visit the GNIB office with all relevant documents;

Original marriage/civil partnership certificate
Original passport of both
Evidence of your joint address
