Family Reunification of Healthcare Assistants in Ireland: A Special Campaign Launched

Dublin: Thousands of health care assistants who have arrived in Ireland from foreign countries, including India, have launched a special campaign to simplify the family reunification process.

Most of the health care assistants who have arrived in Ireland are qualified nurses. The nationwide campaign was launched in Ireland by an independent organisation called Overseas Health and Home Care Ireland.

As part of this, care assistants and members of the general public who support them have been sending letters to members of the Irish Parliament since yesterday. The campaign also has the support of various ministers and trade unions.

Increase the minimum annual wage for non-EEA healthcare assistants from €27,000 to €30,000. The campaign’s main demands are to grant 1G visas to their spouses, and if this is not possible, to grant them dependent work permits as they had previously.
The campaign also requests that overseas nurses who have worked as care assistants in Ireland’s health sector for two years be allowed to waive English language tests and be promoted to nurses after adaptation or RCSI exams if their employers so desire.

With Britain and Australia providing more opportunities for care assistants and nurses, thousands of candidates coming to work in Ireland are eagerly awaiting the government’s decisions. Government-level discussions on new criteria for family reunification have begun this week. The new campaign is also part of that.
