New Arrangements for Locum Doctors

The Department of Justice and Equality (Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service – INIS) in conjunction with the Health Service Executive, the Department of Health and the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, recently introduced new arrangements under the Atypical Working Scheme in respect of non-EEA national locum doctors engaged in the primary health care sector (general practice) and the hospital sector who are employed and paid by an Agency. The new arrangements take effect from 2nd June 2015.

The application under the Atypical Working Scheme must be made outside the State and the successful applicant will not be permitted to travel to Ireland unless in possession of an Atypical Working Scheme Letter of Approval and, the appropriate entry visa, if applicable.

Applications may be made by the non-EEA applicant or by an Authorised Legal Representative. Please note that we can assist eligible applicants in making such applications.
