The Irish Atypical Working Scheme is a new type of working scheme allows non-EEA nationals to come to Ireland to work on short term basis (between 14 and 90 days). This Scheme will apply to you if:

  • You will be employed in Ireland on a short term basis i.e. between 14 and 90 calendar days (inclusive);
  • You will be employed on a trial basis (not exceeding 90 days inclusive of date of entry to the State) with the option to get a permanent position which is on the Highly Skilled List and apply for a work permit/ green card;
  • You are a full time student, studying outside of Ireland and you would like to complete a paid internship in Ireland for up to 3 months.

This scheme will only apply to applicants who have been offered a position form an Irish-based employer. You may only lodge one Atypical Working Scheme application per calendar year. If you need to stay in Ireland longer, you may consider applying for an Irish work permit, green card or a study permit. The processing time for the permit under the Atypical Working Scheme is about 2-3 weeks. Once the permit is approved, you may also require a visa to enter Ireland, depending on your passport country. The visa processing time would depend on the relevant embassy’s processing times which can be up to 8 weeks.

Dependent family members will not be allowed to accompany you under this Scheme. They will need to apply in their own right. VisaFirst can help you arrange this also.

I just wanted to thank Visa First for the processing of our application. We were fortunate to have Nicky Andrews assist us with our application. She was immediately helpful from when she first took on my queries. Nicky constantly kept us updated via email and/or phone. When we asked questions she responded immediately. She also helped us track our application when it was being handled by the consulate. I am more than happy to promote your services to others. Many thanks especially to Nicky.

Dear Sarah, I would like to thank you for your e-mail and your colleagues for providing me with professional and friendly visa service during the last nine months, especially because my situation was not a simple deal: non-EU citizen, differences in name transliteration. And I look forward to use your service again, if I decide to travel abroad in the future.
