Permission to remain for undocumented non-EEA nationals

Draft scheme to regularise undocumented migrants

A new scheme to allow people who have no immigration status in Ireland to apply for legal residence is expected to start before the end of 2021.

The Minister for Justice announced the plan in April 2021 and said that people who have lived in Ireland for at least 4 years will be able to apply. If the application is successful, they will get permission to live and work in Ireland.

We will have more information about the scheme when it becomes available.
