Recent changes to Irish Immigration law directly affect U.S. citizens who are planning to retire to Ireland. After arriving in Ireland, you must have permission to remain if you wish to stay for more than 3 months.
You must be able to prove to the Irish Naturalization and Immigration Service (INIS) that you have sufficient resources to support yourself and obtain permission to remain by registering with your local immigration registration officer following your arrival in Ireland. You must be in a position to show that you have sufficient resources to cover your stay in Ireland *****without recourse to public funds, services or Irish State benefits.***** You should also have private medical insurance to cover your stay in Ireland. You must report to your local Immigration Officer with details of your future intentions and sufficient evidence of the above.
INIS advises the following as an eligibility requirement:
Persons of Independent Means
For persons of independent means, the financial threshold is generally considered to be €50,000 ($56,265 US) per person per annum ($4688.75 per month (MY monthly income from SS and investments is slightly above $3,000 so I am SOL)), plus the person must have access to a lump sum of money to cover any unforeseen major expenses (I have L_O_T_S of savings). This should be equivalent to, for example, the price of a dwelling in the State. Financial documentation should be presented in tabular form and converted into Euros, clearly showing all income and expenditure on a monthly basis. This must be certified by an Irish accountancy firm who have the expert knowledge to interpret the format of the overseas banking / accountancy documentation. Each application is dealt with on a case by case basis.
If you are refused permission to remain in Ireland you will be informed of the reasons for this and given the opportunity to leave the State voluntarily within a specified period. ****Failure to depart voluntarily may result in you being subject to deportation.***** (Here Mayors of Sanctuary Cities tell the INVADERS, "They are coming for you today, you do NOT have to answer your door … HIDE .. I will take care of you.")
Please note that Because Irish Immigration is solely responsible for decisions concerning entry requirements for Ireland, *****the U.S. Embassy cannot advise on entry and procedural requirements on its behalf.*** *** Please keep in mind that the American Citizen Services Unit cannot provide assistance for private matters concerning U.S. citizens’ retirement plans in Ireland.***** (Unlike some of our politicians who assist INVADERS with what to say and escort them into the country)
So why do the DEMON-RATS here on OPP think we should open our country to everyone? NO civilized country allows it, as per example of Ireland.
