Irish Work Permit Procedure Changes

Irish work permit procedure changes impacting refused or cancelled GEPs. The Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment (DETE) activates a temporary suspension of the “Return and Refund” process, affecting GEP applications.

Why the Suspension Activation by the DETE?

  • The DETE currently faces high level demand and is conducting a review of the process to improve the service.

What Does This Irish Work Permit Update Mean for You?

  • If you withdraw a GEP application or have a refusal, this results in a 90% refund not a 100% refund. ​
  • Consequently, this may cause a financial impact if you have multiple refusals or withdrawals.
  • As levels are high, you may be experiencing GEP or Irish work permit refusals.
