The Employment Permits Section of my Department informs me that currently no new or renewal Employment Permit application for the person concerned in the details supplied has been received.

I am also informed that the Critical Skills Employment Permit that issued to the person concerned in the details supplied is due to expire on 29th June 2024. Therefore, the person concerned will no longer be entitled to work in the State after this date if they have not either secured a Stamp 4 immigration permission from the Department of Justice, or submitted an application for a renewal of their permit. The applicant is advised to check their eligibility for a Stamp 4 immigration permission (which will allow them to work without a permit), or to ensure their employer has submitted a renewal application on their behalf as soon as possible.

Applications for employment permits are dealt with in date order. As of 17th June 2024, the Employment Permits Section are processing new applications in respect of standard employers which were received on 10th May 2024.

The Employment Permits processing times are updated on a weekly basis at the following link:

There is also an Online Status Update Enquiry - where details on a particular application can be found on the following link:
