Support Stamp 3 Visa Holders to Access Employment in Ireland

Support Stamp 3 Visa Holders to Access Employment in Ireland

Grant stamp 3 visa holders direct access to employment without the requirement of applying for a work permit

Why is this important?

What is Stamp 3 visa?
Stamp 3 visa is a type of residence permit that states people cannot work or engage in business, trade, or profession. This type of stamp is issued to spouses and children of general work employment permit holders as well as spouses of Non-EEA PhD students in Ireland.

Why is this important to us?
As skilled immigrants in Ireland we would like to be treated with equality to access employment and contribute to the economy of Ireland. This can only be achieved by removing the obstacles that we have to go through to be considered for employment in Ireland.

What can you do to help?
We request for your support to petition the Irish government to allow spouses & children of general work employment permit holders and spouses of PhD students to access employment without the requirement of applying for a separate work permit.

Reasons for signing

  • As a residence permit stamp 3 visa holder, I sometimes experience the decline in my mental health and insecurity in myself and in my abilities. It is a constant battle to address this.
