Re: Need help

Aw, that's depressing. |
So I was thinking that maybe I might go for college, but then I don't really know if it is expensive and if I can manage it with minimum wage job.
Would any course do, or is there a specific list of field I have to study in order to successfully move over to Ireland? I'm planning on becoming a Dental Technician.
Thanks for the support.
: If you're a US citizen you can visit for 90
: days before you have to leave. But, leave
: you must unless you want to become an
: illegal immigrant.
: The ways to gain residency basically boil
: down to this:
: 1. Get a job. It can't be in sales,
: clerking, serving, hotels, child care,
: construction or any other field that a
: non-college grad would possibly qualify for.
: They're all closed. Then, your prospective
: has to be willing to pay a 1500 extra fee
: and advertise for 2 months for an EU citizen
: to fill your job. Then they have to be
: offering you an annual salary of at least
: 30,000 euro. 60,000 per year is much better
: and all other restrictions disappear.
: 2. Become a student. As a student, you can
: work here. The college has to be on a
: recognized list and they keep working to
: close the bogus places just set up to let
: people work here.
: 3. Have enough money in an Irish bank
: (30,000 euro)plus full health insurance so
: that you won't become a burden on the
: 4. Marry an Irish girl. The problem here is
: that everyone wants to do this. I did the I
: do and I do not regret a minute. But, the
: problem is to find a lass as foolish as the
: one who married me and trick her into it.
: Even then, this has to be approved and they
: can kick you out if the immigration people
: think you just got married to get around
: 5. Start a company where you invest 300,000
: euro into the Irish economy.
: 6. Start a company without the 300,000 but
: with substantial experience in the field and
: get your business plan approved by the very
: sceptical officials at the business approval
: agency of the Justice Dept.
: 7. Marry an EU girl. See number 4.
: 8. Come visit for 90 days, no work allowed
: and enjoy the experience. Then go to
: college, get a degree in some medical field
: or engineering or programming, etc. Get two
: years of experience under your belt. Hope
: that the irish depression is over and
: they're hiring again when you get the
: degree. Apply for a job with an Irish firm.
: See number 1.
: I think that just about covers it. Not a lot
: of hope, but there used to be
: under-the-table employment, particularly in
: construction. No more. When things do get
: going again, there'll be more
: under-the-table hirings but again, at that
: point you'll be an illegal immigrant if
: caught and forever barred if found.
: So my advice remains - visit for 3 months or
: become a student.
