Can you enter and work in Ireland as a Visitor?

Nationals of EU and EEA countries can travel to Ireland to work and live without an immigration permission. However, citizens of non-EU/EEA countries will require an Employment Permit and Irish Residence Permit card if they intend to live and work in Ireland. In addition, nationals from countries on the entry visa required list will also need an entry visa to enter Ireland, if they do not have an Irish Residence Permit.

It is important to note that it is prohibited to carry out any work-related activities on a business visa or under the visa-waver agreement for non-EU nationals. If in doubt, please check with Hudson McKenzie before you travel to find out whether you need an employment permit to undertake proposed activities.
