Indian immigration to Ireland is at a record high

Dublin: In the first seven months of 2023, 6,192 new work permits were granted in Ireland’s health and social work sectors alone, according to government figures.

Health and social work (6,192), the information and communication sector (2,769), the hospitality sector (1,503), and the finance and insurance sector (1,336) are the sectors with the highest number of work permits granted to foreign workers.
A total of 18,367 work permits were issued during the period up to July 31 this year, of which 6,868 were issued to people from India.

There is now an all-time record for the number of people immigrating to Ireland from India. As of 2018, there were less than 18,000 Indians in Ireland. But last year alone, Ireland issued PPS numbers to more than 25,000 Indians for the first time. These include work visa holders and around 6,000 international students.

With the relaxation of the terms of the Atypical Working Scheme, a short-term contract available to all non-EEA nationals who wish to work for short-term jobs in critical skill occupations in Ireland, there has been an increase in the rush to reach Ireland in search of work.
