Snippet Contents:

The European Communities (Reception Conditions) Regulations 2018, which came into effect from 30 June 2018, provide access to the labour market for eligible international protection applicants. The Regulations provide a wide access to both employment and self-employment in almost all sectors and categories of employment. There are a small number of exceptions, such as the Irish Civil and Public Service, An Garda Siochana and the Irish Defence Forces, due to their eligibility requirement of long-term residence or citizenship in the State.
I am advised by the Immigration Service of my Department that, since the introduction of the 2018 Regulations, a total of 4,697 international protection applicants have applied for a permission to access the labour market. Of those, 3,179 were granted a permission and 1,367 were refused as ineligible.  The table below sets out the figures in more detail.
Granted 3,179 
Ineligible 1,367 
Pending* 151 
Total 4,697 
 
 * The pending figure includes applications which have not yet reached 9 months, and those awaiting the return of requested supporting documents.
