Re: Renewal of Stamp 1G while waiting for temp stamp 4

If you need to create a new Stamp 4 application while the 1G application is still in progress, you can simply mention your 1G application reference number in the notes section of your Stamp 4 application and ask them not to proceed with it.

Re: EEA Citizen non EU Spouse, EU TR Visa Application - Directive 2004/38/EC (Free Movement Directive)

Unfortunately it is possible to take that long. We have seen people who have waited for 3 months to get a visa. Some cases are simply quicker or slower than others and sometimes we just don’t know why. All I can say is it shouldn’t take that long for an average person with no adverse immigration his...

Re: Renewal of Stamp 1G while waiting for temp stamp 4

You just apply for a new renewal the same way. Just select a different renewal stamp and reason. I think the online portal doesn’t allow you to put an expiry date further than 3 months, so you just need to put some random dates in there.

Re: Renewal of Stamp 1G while waiting for temp stamp 4

If you are eligible to renew your 1G (i.e. you have a Masters or PhD, and you have not spent 7 years on student related permissions), you should renew it. If you want to save the 300 euro registration fee, you can wait till the last day before you renew it, just in case your temporary permission com...

Re: Critical Skills Employment Permit Refused - Ireland

DETE usually is quite determined to get to the bottom of everything, at least that was my feeling in the past. Not sure if they are still like that. It’s always good to be prepared.

The job title and responsibilities are certainly good. However, your HR should be prepared to answer questions from DETE as to why the title and responsibilities are different from what they initially applied.

Re: Long Term Visa D Application Within The State

You are mixing visas with residency permissions. Visas serve no other purposes than entering the state. You cannot apply for an entry visa whilst in the state because you are already in. Type D visa is a prerequisite to apply for residency in the state for most of non-EU nationals. I.E. if you want ...

Re: Recent experience about entering UK without visa for travelling to Ireland via airport

I think I have gone to great lengths to try to persuade people from doing that in a number of threads in the past. The policy has always been the same - Ireland is a common travel area signatory, and the normal transit rules do not apply to Ireland. Someone allowing you to pass through does not mean...

Re: REFUSAL OF GENERAL WORK PERMIT

Once the former employee resigns, he/she or their employer must notify DETE and the work permit gets invalidated on that day. Changing employer without applying for a new work permit is an immigration offence. The employer needs to formally ask DETE to revoke their previous employee’s work permit. U...

IT system admins do not fall into critical skills list. You must be either an IT system manager or have relevant R&D related skills as part of your job roles (i.e. you need to part of a development team rather than maintaining systems alone).

He can travel on his own, no problem. I was once told by an airport immigration agent (NON-EU citizen queue) that I could use the EU citizen queue with my stamp 4, even when traveling alone. The problem is that not every agent follows the same rule, and I've been told to go to the NON-EU queue even...

Re: Eu3 and employment

No. Once you obtain 5 years of residency, both you and your EU spouse acquire the rights to permanent residency on your own merit. That means, there is nothing that INIS can use to remove you from the state. (Well except for other legitimate grounds such as national security or if INIS has reasonabl...

Re: Eu3 and employment

EU3 is on the applicant's own merit. There is no longer a 'sponsor'. If for example the EU national leaves the country, the non-EU national can still live here without any restrictions. Neither the EU nor the non-EU national needs to exercise treaty rights once they obtain the permanent residence.

Re: What happen with the IRP when you get your citizenship?

IRP cannot be issued to Irish nationals, so they will become invalid on the day when you become an Irish citizen. I don’t know if they will mark the card as invalid in their system. They used to just take everyone’s ITP away before issuing the certificate, so that was never an option in the first pl...

As I’ve said, the visa you applied for allows people to live and work in Ireland. Almost all such visas are processed by the Dublin office. It doesn’t matter if you want to only stay for a week. The visa gives you the rights to stay in Ireland forever. It will take longer to process. Most people app...

You should have applied for a tourist visa. That would have been far much quicker. 2-3 weeks at most. You applied for a visa under the EU Treaty rights, which means if the visa is granted, you can live in Ireland with your spouse. Residence visas are almost always referred to Dublin office and will ...
