Green Card:
Hi, When can we apply for Green card renewal ? i.e. 1. Once the existing green card is expired or 2. Before the expiry for exiting green card. If point 1 is true then during green card processing time ( which is around 2 months ) , we will be without any permit/green card but will be employed !!! Another point is Garda immigration card is valid till Green card expiry date, so During renewal period Garda immigration card / Irish visa will be invalid. Would appreciate if some one let me know how these issue will be handled.

Green Card:
Hi, I was from non EU and recently completed(passed) my 4 years of graduation from Dublin City University (Irish University), and now I am on Graduate permit of 6 six months. I got my result for my final year last month and my Graduation cermony will be in November. I got job offer from one company and I fulfil all the requirements of Green Card. But my company is saying that they can’t apply for my Green Card unless I get the Graduate diploma certificate (which I will get on the day of my Graduation cermony in Nov). So my question is that if I submit my results along with the college letter mentioning that I successfully completed all my years and I am due to graduate in November, will that be acceptable for the Green Card application?, Or they really need the Graduate diploma certificate?. Although at this stage there is nothing which can stop me to get my degree certificate in November. Also if my company apply for my Work permit in November will I will be able to get my Green Card in one month because my 6 months Graduate permit is going to expire in December. I will really appreciate if you someone can please answer my questions. Great Thanks Great thanks

Hi, I'm a Filipino citizen currently working here in Ireland as an ICT professional using a Working Visa. My visa is due for renewal this November. Those on Green Card that are due next year can apply for long term residency, while i still need to wait a further 3 yrs. Is it possible for me to switch to Green Card? Is there a way to credit my 2 yrs here as valid and allow me to apply for long term residency this November? I've tried calling before but i wasn't lucky as i'm always told that a separate government office handles working visa and that i should contact them instead. Thanks, Jamirr.

Green Card:
Hi, My girlfriend is Australian and was in Ireland on a 12 month working holiday visa which has expired. She has been head-hunted and offered a job that is described in the letter of offer of employmet as 'Graphics Designer / Design and Development Technologist'. The letter also states that she has all the required qualifications i.e diploma in Graphics Design etc. She is paying for the Green Card application herself and has filled out all the necessary documentation. We are concerned because she dosent have a degree which seems to be the norm (though not specifically stated), the job title is only partially defined in the GC job title list and the salary will be less than 60k. We cant apply for a regular work permit because the employer cant advertise the position. The department advised to apply anyway as each application is processed based on individual merit. What do you think her chances are? Thanks and I appreciate your advice.

Green Card:
About the expiration of a green card permit. I understood from the site that after the expiration of the green card permit (2 years), the GNIB officer may be able to give a stamp 4 depending on the circumstances. Is this the case only if the green card is expired?, or is it the case if I have been present for over 2 years by a green card permit? Because my situation is that I have held 2 green card permits due to switching jobs every year. ie, my question is, do I have to wait till my second green card expires ( 3 years) to get stamp 4? or will I get it after 2 years from holding any green card? I hope my question is understandable.

Hello, I am a Non EU student doing PhD in Electronics Engineering in Ireland. I have been doing this since last 2 years and 10 months and the funding of my project is draining in Feb 2011. Although my PhD will not be finished in Feb 2011. Therefore I have been told to seek a full time job to support myself and try to complete PhD part time. Before Phd I have a bachelors degree in ELectronics engineering and Masters degree in ELectronics engineering from Sweden. I also have five years work experience in a non EU country. Now I have been offered a job by a multinational company in Ireland. The offered salary is 45k. As I am not eleigible for graduate scehem yet( because my PhD is in progress) what should be the appropriate way for me to apply for the green card. Should I leave Ireland and then apply for the green card form my home country? Do I also have to apply for a new visa on the basis of that green card. My studnet visa is valid up to july 2010 and my passport is valid up to april 2012. Do I need to make a new passport so that it is valid for full two year duration of green card.Do i need to include photocopies of my stamp two visas in my green card application.

Dear Sir, The information regarding green card is quite vague in the sense that itdoes not encompass all the scenarios. I have been doing PhD here in Ireland however the funding of my PhD is finishing in March 2011. My pHd work willcontinue even beyond March 2011. My supervisors asked me to look for a fulltime job to support myself and complete PhD part time. Now I have been offered a full time job by a multi national company in Ireland and the salary offered is above 40k. I am still not eligible for graduate scheme asmy phd still in progress. How should I apply for the green card now. As I have seen many cases where green cards have been rejected becasue of stamp2 on passport. If i leave Ireland and then apply for green card will it be an appropriate method. Kindly guide me in this regard. Similarly the application form says that passport must be valid atleast for 12 months while some other documents on the ENTP websites says passport must be valid for whole 2 years of the green card. what does rule say in this regard.

Good day, My first question: On the "New Employment Permit Application" the following statement "Certified copies of the proposed employee’s relevant qualifications should be attached to this form." applies to the employee. I need to get my degree certificate reprinted (in English). Do I need to supply other / more transcripts related to my degree? If so, where can I find a list of these required academic documents? (The process takes some time and I wish to have everything ready at the same time) My second question: It is difficult to get employment just on a telephonic interview. I do not need an entry visa for a stay less than 3 months (According to my local Irish embassy). Will I be allowed to enter Ireland for a week to be interviewed for employment purposes and if I get a job offer, then apply for a Green Card? If so, what should I state at border control my reason for entry is? (Is there as specific category for this?) Can I remain in Ireland while I'm waiting for the Green Card to be processed (past the initial 3 months visa free entry)? I hope to hear from you soon. -- Best regards, TungstenX
