Thousands of Indians landed in Ireland in search of work

Dublin: The number of Indians seeking work and a better life in Ireland is growing. Foreign employees received 27,653 work permits from the beginning of January to the end of August. 2,210 applications were denied, while 1,466 were cancelled. According to government data, 10,171 of those who acquired work licenses were Indians.

The population of Indians in Ireland has reached an all-time high. Given that between 2000 and 2015, fewer than 30,000 Indians arrived in Ireland in search of work, the number of arrivals in the first few months of this year alone is staggering. Without counting international students, almost 15,000 Indians have arrived in Ireland this year alone.

According to statistics, more than half of those granted visas are Indians. The majority of those who came to Ireland on nurse and health care assistant visas are Indians.

Brazilians have 3,322 permits, the Philippines have 1,387 permits, and Pakistanis have 1,277 permits. According to the data, the number of people seeking work in Ireland from outside the European Economic Area has dramatically increased. According to estimates from the Department of Enterprise, Trade, and Employment, this is the greatest number in 13 years.

Last year, 16,419 permits were issued within the same time period. If current trends continue, the number of foreign workers scheduled to arrive in Ireland will exceed 40,000 by the end of December 2022. The most licenses were issued for information and communication operations (7,608). 6,609 permits were also granted in the fields of health and social work.

For months, labor shortages have been severe across Europe, including Ireland. They are unfilled by businesses and organizations. Ireland, like other EU countries, has taken steps to remedy this by recruiting people from outside the EEA. The country’s Critical Skills Occupations List now comprises 90 occupations. The health and STEM industries have the most open positions.
