Developments at national level

  • New arrangements for processing applications for Subsidiary Protection have been announced.  The responsibility for processing subsidiary protection applications at first instance will be transferred from Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) to the Office of the Refugee Applications Commissioner (ORAC). There will be a personal interview in ORAC which is intended to establish the full details of an application and to enable a determination to be made. An oral appeal to the Refugee Appeals Tribunal will be available in respect of negative ORAC decisions.
  • New Atypical Working Scheme, coordinated by the Department of Justice and Equality (Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service) in agreement with the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, is available to non-EEA nationals who, in certain circumstances, are required by a company/organisation in Ireland to undertake short-term contract work in Ireland.
