Bill Allowing Up to 5,000 Work Visas for Irish Citizens Put Before the House of Representatives

A new bill is being sent to the House of Representatives that would allow up to 5,000 work visas to be available for Irish citizens.

Bill Allowing Up to 5,000 Work Visas for Irish Citizens Put Before the House of Representatives
A new bill is being sent to the House of Representatives that would allow up to 5,000 work visas to be available for Irish citizens. The extra visas would need a unanimous support in the Senate to be put into law.

The proposal suggests that Ireland be added to the E3 program. The program is only available to Australian citizens, and it lasts for up to two years. The person that applies and is accepted into the visa program can also bring their spouse along to live and work in the United States.

There are currently 10,500 such visas available, yet half of these are not taken.

Key elements of the proposal would also require that Ireland change some of their laws, allowing U.S. citizens to have an easier time retiring in the country. Retirees would also gain the right to work up to 20 hours per week in Ireland.

"An individual who is a citizen of a country which has a Treaty of Trade and Commerce with the United States may obtain an E work visa if it is established that he / she will be employed in the United States by an overseas corporation qualifying for Treaty Trader status and the individual will be providing services in the United States that are “essential to the efficient operation” of the Treaty Trade corporation," states The Shapiro Law Group.

The bill reportedly has bipartisan support in the House, but it would need unanimous support on the US Senate. Paul Ryan, Speaker of the House, has been centrally involved with the Irish government’s special envoy, John Deasy.

Legislation went into law in 2015 in Ireland that made it more difficult for U.S. retirees to retire in Ireland without a massive annual income of between $55,138 - $110,276. The higher end of the spectrum is for couples, and the income requirements must be met to obtain a visa in the country. Current law would forbid these individuals from working in Ireland despite residing in the country.

Permission to remain in the country must be renewed every year, making it more difficult for retirees to remain in the country.

The new deal, if it were approved, would need to drop the annual income requirements and will also lift some of the stricter requirements. Irish in Washington are pushing for a new deal, but no timetable has been given on when the bill will be discussed.
