IMPACT — MEDIUM

The Irish government recently opened registration for submitting suggestions for revising the Critical Skills Occupations List and the Ineligible List of Occupations.

Key Points:

  • Interested parties can now submit their revisions to the Critical Skills Occupations List and the Ineligible List of Occupations.
  • To submit recommendations, individuals should complete this form and email it to the Economic Migration Policy Unit

Additional Information: The current Critical Skills Occupations List and Ineligible List of Occupations determine what occupations are available to nationals of countries other than Switzerland, the U.K. and those in the European Economic Area and what occupations are ineligible for employment permits, respectively. The full lists are available here and here.

BAL Analysis: Irish authorities have requested for revisions to the Critical Skills Occupations List and the Ineligible List of Occupations, so they can address labor market shortages and protect the Irish workforce in key employment categories. Stakeholders are encouraged to submit their revisions as soon as possible to avoid complications.
