Business permission

Arising from the review of the Business, Entrepreneurial and Investor related migration scheme undertaken by INIS, it has been decided that the 'Business Permission Scheme' will remain discontinued.

No further applications will be accepted, as per the previous web notice dated 16 March 2016.

Renew existing permission

If you were granted permission before this scheme ended, you may apply for a renewal by writing to:

Business Permission Unit
Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service
Department of Justice and Equality
13-14 Burgh Quay
Dublin 2
D02 XK70

All applications for renewal are reviewed on a case by case basis, looking at the individual merits of each case.

Immigration Investor Programme and Start Up Entrepreneur Programme

If you are a non-EU/EEA and non-Swiss national and you wish to open a business or invest in the State, you may apply for permission under the Immigration Investor Programme and Start Up Entrepreneur Programme.
