Re: Considering a move to Dublin, feedback appreciated

Also, make sure to ask the company to proceed with the critical skills work permit and don't opt for intracompany transfer permit.
Thank you! Absolutely, given that my wife also needs to find work having CSWP and Stamp 1 for my wife would go a long way;
