Reasons why Bangladeshis are denied work visas in Ireland

While in Britain there are strict conditions for other work visas including work permits, work permits and visas are relatively easy to get in Ireland, the neighboring country of Britain.


However, Bangladeshis are being denied visas to Ireland simply because of lack of skills.

Barrister Shuvagata Dey, principal solicitor of Lexpert Solicitors in London, told on Saturday that Ireland, a European country, has decided to grant work permit visas to citizens of different countries. The Irish Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment has approved nearly 19,000 new work permits so far this year. Ireland can be an attractive destination in Europe for Bangladeshi migrant workers.

It is known that in 2021, Ireland has a shortage of workers in various sectors including health care. Then the country’s employment permit was relaxed. As a result, the Irish Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment approved 40,000 work permits in 2022. Skill Employment Permit and General Employment Permit are among these. And the minimum salary in this visa is 30 thousand euros per year, which is about 32 lakh taka in Bangladeshi currency.

Bangladeshi businessmen involved in the technology industry in Ireland have brought in a few skilled workers from the country.

Work permits and work visas are separate in Ireland. First apply for work permit, then work visa. This visa is given for both short and long term. Although the visa is initially granted for two years, the newcomers can apply for indefinite leave to remain or permanent residence if they have been valid for five years.

Professor Abdus Shahid, a businessman and community leader who has lived in Ireland for a long time, said on Saturday that even if a student comes to Ireland, there is an opportunity to settle in this country very easily compared to the UK. One can easily settle in this country in terms of work permit. In the last two years, a large number of Indians have come to this country on work permits and student visas. Hospitals are full of Indian workers. But sad as it is true, due to lack of experience Bangladeshis are not able to come to this country despite having opportunities.

Work permit issues from Ireland are very fast. But when the Bangladeshis go to the Indian embassy in Ireland to get their visa, most of the Bangladeshis do not get the visa.
If we had experience, the way thousands of Indian workers got visas here in two years, Bangladeshis would also get the same.
