Employment permit for remote worker?

Post New Topic

Hello, new to this community! I am a remote worker specializing in digital marketing/communication & web design. In remote work the company is entirely distributed/remote, so in this case what would I do about an Irish employment permit? While technically I have income without a right to work specifically in Ireland, my research has implied I need one to be able to legally reside in Ireland.

A bit of background, my fiance and I plan to relocate to Ireland after our wedding in November of this year. I will be working and he will be looking to study for qualification as a post-primary teacher (he is a military veteran with a Bachelor of Science already and wishes to go into teaching in Ireland -- we also verified his veteran education benefits will support study overseas).

Basically, what would be a good route to ensure we are legally OK to stay in Ireland past the 90 day permission we get as US citizens? Could I get a work permit (I do qualify for the Critical Skills permit based on my job function) if I don't work for a company registered in Ireland? Or, would it be better to get legal residency based on my spouse pursuing a master's in Ireland?

Any advice much appreciated!

Maybe you are on critical skills list but from what I understand, they need you to be hired by a Irish Company and not just some digital work you do for someone else. There has been a few people that checked in here that were hired through the list and said it took about a year to get proper visa to work and live in Ireland. Second, from what I also understand, the spouse of someone in Ireland with a Student Visa has no special rights for resident Visa. I believe you either get a stamp "0" Visa or only stay 90 days.

I'm in the same situation, but no boyfriend. I work remotely for a US-based company in the US, but want to move to Ireland. I believe my company is registered in Ireland, as we are recruiting there and have at least 1 current employee in Dublin. How do I go about getting a permit to live in Ireland past the 90 day US citizen stay?

Company might be registered in Ireland, but do they have manufacturing or main offices there. I believe the Irish government wants to see companies with facilities that can employ many workers. If your company only has one worker, I doubt they fit the plan unless they are intending to expand. I think you need to do some research before you jump. If you qualify for professional status on the Irish critical skills list why not look for employment with a existing Irish company in your field ?

Your employer would have to agree to a work permit for Ireland. Would there be any chance of a transfer from the U.S. job to their base in Ireland?
