IRELAND: Immigration authorities relax rules for cohabiting partners

The Irish Immigration Authorities have updated their requirements for non EU or EEA nationals who are unmarried partners of Irish nationals or Irish residents to make it easier for them to obtain immigration authorisation.

They must now be able to demonstrate their relationship of one year instead of two, as previously required. If successful then the immigration permission can also include authorisation to work.

How does the affect the client?

This change can expand the group of foreign nationals able to work in Ireland and can also make the relocation of spouses of Irish and Irish resident employee’s much easier.
