  • Transfer of responsibility for IRP registration and renewal for County Cork and Limerick

    Following the change of IRP registration and renewal arrangement for residents in County Kildare, Wicklow, and Meath, County Cork and Limerick will be added to the list effective July 8, 2024. First-time Irish residence permission applicants from Cork and Limerick must attend the Burgh Quay, Dublin 2 registration office instead of going to the Garda National Immigration Bureau (GNIB). For resident permission renewal applicants, you will no longer be required to revisit the office. You can do the IRP renewal online using the ISD online renewal portal here . We have included some crucial information regarding your registration below: An appointment with the office is required and can be booked by phone (1800 800 630) between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday to Friday . You will be asked for your email address and passport details, so get them ready before you call the office. The documents required for your IRP registration will be: Your passport Printed and completed address form attached to your appointment’s confirmation email Any other supporting documents that are relevant to your status Please note that every document you provide must be printed, or it will not be accepted, and you will need to book a return appointment to complete your application. Applicants must also pay for their registration at the office; the authorities will only accept debit or credit card payments, so remember to bring your card with you, as contactless payment is not allowed. Future Direct is one of the leading immigration consultancy firms in Ireland. We provide immigration services to corporate and individual clients.

  • More key steps and crucial details for the Stamp 1G extension application!

    In addition to our latest post about key information for applying for a Stamp 1G extension (link here), we will share our experiences with the Stamp 1G extension application process in this blog. The topics covered include: How do I submit my application? You are required to submit a few documents to the department by post. The relevant documents are below. Please note that this list is not exhaustive and varies depending on the applicant's condition. You must provide a detailed letter of your request; any statement/reason made in this letter MUST be supported by documentary evidence. You must provide your full academic history in Ireland. You must provide evidence of your financial sources. You must present your private medical insurance. A full, valid copy of the passport is mandatory. You must also provide evidence of your current address. We strongly advise potential applicants to approach us to make that application rather than DIY the application because: Our experts are highly experienced in preparing a full application statement for you. If your application is rejected, you cannot appeal the decision. Given that the application process takes 4 to 6 months, you will need to start the application from the beginning. How long will my extension be granted? Based on our experience, the immigration officer determines the extension duration on a case-by-case basis. Typically, a six-month extension is granted for a first-time application. If the applicant cannot secure an employment permit within these six months, they can apply for another extension, which may be granted for up to 12 months. However, the exact duration will be at the discretion of the visa officer. What is the chance of success in my application? Each application case is evaluated independently. Applicants are expected to provide comprehensive documentary evidence and genuine reasons to increase the likelihood of receiving extension approval. What happens after I have submitted my application? You will receive an acknowledgement letter in the post in the first 2-4 weeks from the immigration office confirming that your application has been received. The acknowledgement letter will also include your application reference number. Afterwards, you will need to wait patiently for approximately 5 to 6 months to obtain a letter of approval. After receiving your approval letter, you must renew your IRP online if you are based in Dublin, Wicklow, Kildare, or Meath. You must visit your local Garda station for other counties to obtain a new IRP card. Once approved, a new IRP card will be posted within 2 to 3 weeks. Therefore, it is important to plan your time and application accordingly. Finding it troublesome and challenging? Contact Future Direct now and talk to our experienced immigration consultants; we can help you plan a sufficient time and make an application on your behalf. Call us at +353 871734289 or email info@futuredirect.ie. We are happy to answer your questions and help you with this matter.

  • Exploring Ireland's Population Shift: The Impact of Immigration on Demographic Changes

    Fine Gael's new leader, Simon Harris, highlighted that Ireland is a nation shaped by immigration. However, what do the latest statistics reveal about Ireland's population and the number of immigrants residing here? In 20 years' time, Ireland’s total population had increased from 3.9 million people to 5.3 million. Indicating a 1.3 million increase in the total population. Among that population, approximately 45% are formed by net migration (People entering and leaving Ireland), and around 55% are formed by natural increase (Annual births and deaths) Ever since the total population in Ireland hit 5 million, the population has been increasing rapidly in recent years. Based on the population changes in the past five years,  only 2021 is below the average population increase, mainly due to the pandemic and lockdown of Covid 19. Among the five years from 2019 to 2023, other than 2021, the increase in population is all due to the number of immigrants around the globe, whereas the country's natural birth and death rate remains constant and stable. In 2023, the number of immigrants holds 80% of the total increased population in Ireland, which marks the highest percentage in Ireland’s history for the past 20 years, exceeding the rate of 73% in 2007. In addition, a higher average number of employment permits were issued in the first three months of 2024 (3.3k) than the average number of 2.4k per month in 2023. We can confidently conclude that the number of immigrants will continue to increase in the upcoming years, provided that the Irish government announces no exceptional events or policies. However, the impact of the decision regarding raising the minimum threshold to apply for an employment permit in 2025 remains uncertain. Future Direct is one of the leading immigration consultancy firms that provide immigration services to corporate and individual clients in Ireland. Should you face any difficulties or rejections in applying for your employment or residence permit in Ireland, call us today at +353 872400433 or email info@futuredirect.ie. We are happy to answer your questions and help you in this matter.
