Besides, the program allows nationals from non-EEA countries, also taking into account locum doctors or people on short-term contracts to work legally in Ireland.
Based on the new changes introduced by the Department of Justice, from January 1 this year, the salary threshold for this program was amended from the National Minimum Wage in order to align with the salary requirement for General Employment Permit.
The decision means that all employers attempting to apply in order to assign workers through this program will have to ensure that the minimum salary surpasses €30,000
Authorities in Ireland also announced that, following the new changes that became effective last year, permission under the Atypical Working Scheme would be issued for 90 days, which means that the waiting time was also reduced.
In addition, it was clarified that the 90-day period issued under this scheme could also be used to travel into and out of Ireland for a maximum of 90 days over a six-month period.
