Restrictions on Bulgarian and Romanian workers removed

The Government has decided to cease restrictions on labour market access in respect of Bulgarian and Romanian nationals, to the Irish labour market. This decision was made on the 17th July 2012 and is effective from the 1st January 2012 and means that all Bulgarian and Romanian nationals can work in Ireland without a requirement for work permits.

What is a work Permit?
A Work Permit is an employment permit issued to the employee, which permits his or her employment in the State by the employer in the occupation specified on the permit. It will be issued for an initial period of two years and can then be renewed for a further three years. After five years, the work permit can be renewed indefinitely.

Guidelines and application forms for work permits can be found on the Bright Contracts website.
