Second Stage of the Employments Permits Bill 2005

Post by pooja » Thu Oct 13, 2005 8:35 am

Hi All,

There seem to be some changes in the Employment bill since last time. Apparently not all skilled migrant workers will have to earn a minimum of about €55,000 per year to qualify for the Government's new green card system. Following is a snippet from a news article: -

"Firstly, where the annual salary – excluding bonuses - on offer is in excess of €60,000 the Green Card will be available for an extensive list of occupations. It will also be available in the annual salary range from €30,000 to €60,000 for a restricted number of skills shortage occupations. These occupations will be identified after taking advice from the Expert Group on Future Skills Need."

I am quiet sure IT will fall in 30 - 60,000 pa category. From the face of it the new system seems much better than the one currently in place.

Pooja,

Yes, this is the system that seems to be in place in future. I read the 'Dail' report on this - same stuff. I don't think this is going to be linked to any point system like UK or Canada as predicted by few others on this forum before.

Good news - The latest discussion in 'Dail' points out to the fact that people earning between 30-60K could also be covered under the 'Greencard' scheme for a restricted number of skill shortage occupation.

As you mentioned, I also think that IT/ Health/Construction will definitely fall in that range. Areas like 'Sales & Marketing', 'Financial Services' and 'Research/Technical services' might go above 60K!

Other good news - 'Spouses' of these 'Greencard' holders need not to be worried about 'Work permits' anymore. The bill suggests direct employment for them without any work permit needs.

Aj

Aj,

I had no idea that spouses of green card holders will not need work permit. This makes this bill even better. This is going to make things a lot easier for a lot of people.

However I didn't find any information regarding this on net. Can you give me the link where you got this detailed info from?

Regards,

Pooja

Hi Pooja,

This info. is in the news item.

"........Secondly, the Green Cards will be issued for two years initially, with the possibility of permanent or long-term residence after that.


Thirdly, Green Card holders will be permitted to bring their spouses and families to join them immediately, and their spouses will have the right to work without a work permit.

Hi Pooja,
You really gave a great news..This will make the things thousands time easier specially for the people who are living and will be coming to Ireland in future.I guess no one would complain anymore about the stupid bureaucratic and complex policies of the govt for the migrant workers.
Cheers guys and all the best..

CCI calls for permanent residency option

Wednesday, 26th October 2005 02.37pm

The Chambers of Commerce Ireland has called for an option for permanent residency for migrant workers.

In its presentation this morning to the Oireachtas Committee on Enterprise and Small Business on the Employment Permits Bill, the CCI said it cautiously welcomes the bill but said that it does not go far enough to tackling the impediments to making Ireland a first choice destination for skilled migrant workers.

"It is imperative that the new permits system include an option for permanent residency, similar to the US's Green Card system. This will not only encourage talented workers to come to Ireland but will also ensure their full participation in Irish society and its economy," the CCI said.

The CCI said the new regime will not resemble "Green Cards" as generally understood in the context of the American system, which provides for permanent residency and gives the card holder almost the same rights and entitlements of a citizen.

"Instead of treating skilled migrants as potentially permanent members of Irish society with the ability to make valuable contributions to the country, the current system treats them as disposable labour simply filling a short term gap."

May be I can answer this!

As per my understanding, If you're a student no matter how long you stay here you can't get a green card/ permanent residency/ naturalisation. Green card is linked to doing a job in this country under specific categories.

Hope it helps.
