The Critical Skills Employment Permit known as Green Card Permit for Ireland is an employment permit which allows skilled individuals to work in Ireland for a specified employer in an occupation where skills shortages exist. Over 1000 Irish employers use Visa First to successfully organise visas for their staff every year.

The Green Card Ireland is issued for an initial period of two years, after which it can normally be renewed indefinitely.

Good Afternoon, I have just come of the phone with your operator Alan in Kilkenny. It is the first time ever I have come off the phone with a call centre Stress free. If all of your staff are a polite and helpful as this gent, you have in my opinion an excellent workforce. I as of yet do not know if your company can be of assistance, but if you can I will without hesitation be on the phone. I would like to commend you on a customer centre based in Ireland, and the excellent quality of service offered.

I just wanted to let you both know that today I received my UK YMS visa. I went to the Consulate General here in Duesseldolf, Germany, last Wednesday and so getting it back today was much quicker than I expected. Thanks for all your help with my application, and thanks to Visa First - much appreciated.
