In a welcoming sign to global mobility professionals everywhere, Ireland is transitioning toward a fully digital immigration system.
In recent years, top global corporations have increased their footprint in Ireland, emerging as a crucial entry point into the European Union (EU) market. Ireland’s tax, regulatory and immigration rules make it a favorable destination for growing a business and relocating top talent.
While many global mobility professionals are familiar with the immigration process in Ireland, the country’s procedures are constantly evolving. As of June 2022, the system is modernizing to streamline Ireland’s employment permit system to better compete for global talent and to fill labor shortages.
These changes mean Ireland will continue to grow as a favorable destination for global talent. Here’s how Envoy Global helps companies proactively adapt their global immigration program to capitalize on new opportunities in Ireland.

Are you looking to transfer an employee into the EU market? Or do you need a short-term work permit to facilitate a business trip? Envoy’s Ireland Immigration Team can help you identify the best options for your needs.
Ireland offers a variety of immigration routes specifically designed for the recruitment of highly skilled talent. The options range from the General Employment Permit for non-European Economic Area nationals to the Critical Skills Employment Permit for highly skilled workers in sectors like technology and engineering.

With so many new digital options for global mobility professionals to explore, having a technology-focused immigration partner is crucial to navigating Ireland’s evolving system.
