The ISCP is welcoming the news that Physiotherapists have been added to the Critical Skills Occupations list  by the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment.

 

The ISCP has been actively engaging to ensure that physiotherapy was included on  the  list, which identifies national shortages  in qualifications, experience or skills  required for the proper functioning of the economy.

 

The move means that Physiotherapists are now  eligible to apply for a Critical Skills Employment Permit. This  Permit is designed to attract highly skilled people into the labour market.

 

The Critical Skills Employment Permit is attractive for several reasons:

  • Because the skills are identified as being in short supply, a Labour Market Needs Testis not required.
  • Permit holders can apply for immediate family reunification from the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Serviceof the Department of Justice and Equality and once their dependants/partners/spouses are resident in the State they are eligible to seek any employment and apply to the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment for a Dependant/Partner/Spouse Employment Permit which is currently issued free of charge
  • Permit holders may apply to the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service for permission to reside and work without the requirement for an employment permit upon completion of the Critical Skills Employment Permit’s duration.
