IMPACT – MEDIUM
Employment permit applicants are facing lengthy processing delays of several weeks due to a high volume of applications.
Additional information: Processing delays are common during the summer vacation period, but the delays have grown worse this year. According to Jane Pilkington, a partner with Mason Hayes & Curran in Dublin, any employer who can qualify for Trusted Partner status should consider that option, because even though processing is slower than usual, the Trusted Partner queue is faster than standard processing.
BAL Analysis: Irish employers and foreign nationals should be aware of the delays and may need to adjust work start dates and travel schedules for new employees. Existing employees in Ireland who need a temporary stamp to prevent a lapse in residence permission should plan to book their GNIB appointment as far in advance as possible.
