The Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment today has announced that Non-EEA doctors who have completed 21 months or more on a General Employment Permit may now apply for a Stamp 4 permission. Their spouses or partners will also receive a permission allowing them to work.

The request for Stamp 4 support letter form should be completed and returned, along with a recent payslip, to marking the subject title Doctors Stamp 4 Request. An acknowledgement email will issue shortly after submission of the form. No further action is required by the applicant.

The Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment will notify applicants once applications are approved and will send requests on the applicants behalf to the Department of Justice. The Department of Justice will then process applications and issue the Stamp 4 permission directly to the doctors concerned. Applicants must ensure that their address and contact details held by the Department of Justice are correct.

Applications will be accepted from 1 September to 31 October 2022.
