NEW 2 YEAR EXTENSION FOR STUDENTS RESIDING HERE SINCE 2004



The Department of Justice & Equality has announced new arrangements for students who have been continuously resident in the State since before 1 January 2005 (i.e. the student must have received a GNIB card during or before 2004 and for each year thereafter). These new arrangements will allow eligible students to reside in Ireland for a further period of 2 years on specified conditions. In addition, at the conclusion of the two year probationary period those students will be eligible to apply for a more permanent status on condition that certain obligations have been fulfilled.

Any non-EEA national student who first registered their residence in Ireland as student on or before 31 December 2004 and who commenced their studies in Ireland on or before 31 December 2004 may apply for the special probationary extension.

Non-EEA Students who are no longer resident in the State will not be eligible to avail of this student probationary extension.

In order for such a student to be granted the extension they must have maintained their residence as a student from first registration until the date of application for the Student Probationary Extension. Any student not currently registered and with a significant gap in registration will not be eligible to apply for the extension.

Students must also furnish one P60 certificate that has been acquired within the previous three years.

The following residency conditions will apply to the probationary period –

·        The eligible student will not be required to be registered or enrolled in an academic course of study.
·        The eligible student will be permitted to work for a maximum period of 40 hours per week without being required to hold a work permit.
·        The eligible student will be required to maintain private medical insurance.
·        The eligible student will be required to reside in the State without drawing on publicly funded social assistance programmes (e.g. supplementary welfare allowances, medical card, jobseeker supports etc.)
·        The eligible student will not be permitted to apply for reunification with family members who are resident outside the State.
·        The eligible student must be of good character and must demonstrate that they are law abiding.

At the conclusion of the two year probationary period the eligible students can apply for a Stamp 4 permission to reside in the State.

Brophy Solicitors welcomes these new arrangements and is available to assist potential applicants with any queries they may have regarding the scheme.

  3. Hi,
    I was on stamp 1a as trainee accountant when i got my wife's dependent visa (stamp 3) and she came to Dublin in 2010. Then
    these new probationary extension rules were introduced. Initially these rules were introduced only for full time students living on stamp 2. Then trainee accountants were added in same category also. One of the conditions of probationary extension visa is "• The eligible student will not be permitted to apply for reunification with family members who are resident outside the State."
    What will be the status of family members of such students who are already in the state. Will they get their visa extended as they were getting before these new rules? GNIB refused to extend my wife's visa saying that they didnt get any instructions about families of students. Did any one who got 2 years student visa has any family member living in the state and got their visa extension also???? I have sent few emails to different departments of immigration but i didnt any final reply for my query. What should I do? Any advice?

  4. That 2 year extension was really a good news for most of the students who are currently working. I just wish they can still extend it this year.

  6. Hi,

    Will be there any scheme for students arriving after 2004? I came here in June 2005. So, I wasn’t eligible for the scheme. I have heard too many different rumours but I can’t rely on them. Any guidance would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

  12. I am ROSE SMITH from CANADA a single parent, before my husband died he left us with so much DEBT that we could not cope with life, I was totally confused on what to do. When I was going through the internet I came across a POST by MARCUS CAFE about how Mrs JULIA NAVARO help him to get a loan so I applied for the loan from JULIA NAVARO through her mail (navaroloancompany@yahoo.com) of $200,000 with a duration of 10 years. When I was applying for the loan I made a vow to GOD that if I get the loan I will let the world know what she did for me, to my greatest surprise my loan was granted with
    an interest of 2%. I was able to settle my debt and start up a new life and business with a settled family. So if you want any type of loan for as low as 2% please contact JULIA NAVARO on her mail navaroloancompany@yahoo.com.I just fulfilled my vow.

Just a few months Back, I was in search of a loan of $65,000.00 as I was running out of money for my business and i could not pay my children's fees anymore. I was recently scammed of $8,500 by an online lender and I decided not to get involve in such risk again I never knew that a real lender like (Mr.robert) still exist on internet and on earth here. until a Friend of mine introduced me to {Mr Robert} At first I told her I was not interested in any loan deal anymore then she assured me that (Mr.robert) is a genuine lender, though i never believed her, I made a trial and I am glad i did, I was given a loan amount of $65,000.00, by this so i am advising you today If you are interested in a loan, or any financial assistance and you can be reliable, trusted and capable of paying back at the due time of the funds I will advice you to contact:(robertfinancial_loancompany@yahoo.com) and you be free from scams in the internet. All thanks to Mr.robert for restoring happiness unto my business.
