Switching job with General Work Permit within a year

Post by aarul9 » Wed Mar 27, 2019 11:08 am

Hi,

I am currently with General work permit and I reached Dublin Sep 2018.

Now I am looking for the job change and the new employer is ready to process critical skill set for mine.

May i know whether I have to leave the current job and go back to India for initiating the new work permit or any other process to initiate the new work permit from Dublin itself.

Process to initiate the new work permit can be done from Dublin itself. There is no need to go back to India.

Hi bmw,

Thanks for your update. Some of my friends told me that, I cant switch the job within one year of my stay in Ireland. Could you please let me know whether I can switch the job or not.

Eagerly looking for your suggestion.

Guys,

I don't think this is right. you cant change your employer before 12 months of time with your existing employer is what i have heard and available in Irish immigration weblinks. please do refer/verify before suggestion, so that it will help not only for this candidate but for most of the members who queried for similar issues.
