A new and welcome development was recently announced by the government which concerns non-EEA doctors.
This is a favourable immigration rule change for non-EEA doctors who have been working in Ireland for some time.
Now such doctors from non-EEA countries working in the state between 2 – 5 years can apply for permission to work in Ireland without the need of a work permit.
Spouses of the doctors can also obtain immigration permission to work in Ireland.
Stamp 4 benefits the doctors by affording them the ability and right to work in Ireland in the absence of preconditions.
