Deputy Mary Coughlan Deputy Mary Coughlan
Deputy Mary Coughlan: The Employment Permits Section of my Department informs me that this application was refused on the grounds that the proposed employee is currently resident in the State on a Student Stamp and is completing his studies. He is, therefore, ineligible to enter full-time employment. This decision was upheld on appeal. However, should the applicant successfully complete his studies and apply to the Department of Justice, Equality and Law Reform to change his status, following graduation, he may re-apply for an Employment Permit under the Graduate Permit Scheme. Full details of this scheme is available on my Department’s website at www.entemp.ie.
