Work Permits

Page updated: 19 November 2021

Any person coming to work in UCD from outside the EU requires authorisation to work legally in Ireland.  For hourly paid staff, it is the responsibility of the School/Unit to ensure paperwork is in order before work commences.

Regulations regarding employment permits are laid down by the Department of Business, Enterprise and Employment and must be strictly adhered to.

Payment cannot and will not be made to any person who is not authorised to work in Ireland.

Entry Visa information: Information on coming to Ireland can be found at www.irishimmigration.ie/
