IRELAND – CRITICAL SKILLS EMPLOYMENT PERMIT
What is the Critical Skilled Employment Permit?
The Critical Work Authorization (CSEP), which replaced the Green Card work permit, was created to facilitate the relocation of migrant workers to Ireland. This program has unique advantages for employers in Ireland over standard work visas and is only accessible to applicants with the skills required to work in a specific job.
Benefits of the Critical Skills Employment Permit
