As of 1 September, the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment will commence issuing all employment permits in an electronic format with the addition of the signature of a senior official on behalf of the Minister, as well as a unique permit number. There will be no requirement to exchange current permits for this updated permit format and all existing permits issued will continue to remain valid.
Please Note: When renewing a current employment permit, you will still be required to fill in the employment permit number as all zeros on online forms.
