About moving from New Jersey to Ireland

Just about everyone born in New Jersey has Irish roots or so it seems. Many Irish decedents from New Jersey feel quite at home when visiting Ireland. It’s no surprise many people feel compelled to return to the land where their family immigrated from and have fallen in love with the people and culture.
In New York and New Jersey, the Irish roots stem mostly from the Immigration flood of the 1820’s. During that period United States received over 2 million Irish immigrants who escaped massive unemployment and famine that struck Ireland. The flood of Irish immigration to the United States between 1820 to1840 made up close to half of all immigrants that the United States received for 20 years. The wave of immigration 1840’s was the single largest factor that brought about change to the modern American culture washing away most of the European influence it once had.
Recent improvements in the Economy and political landscape in Ireland have brought about many of Irelands much needed reforms. In December 2000, the Northern Ireland first provisional government took over from British control, handing over Northern Ireland to a shared Protestant and Catholic government. Ireland today has stabilized and has seen a GDP of 10%steady increase in the past 10 years. Statistics show that the recent stabilized economy in Ireland has changed the number of people immigrating and are currently seeing an increase in emigration.

Tips for moving from New Jersey to Ireland

Tip 1: M. Larson moved to Dublin 2 Years ago
You do need a work permit to be legally employed. If you were at a University and in Ireland on a student visa you are allowed to work 20 or so hours a week. I teach part time at a University here in Dublin and we get lots of American students who do just that while taking their year/term abroad.”

Tip 2: P. Kelly moved to Belfast 2 years ago
“My recommendation, if you can afford it, would be to come over to Europe for a month or two and just get to know it. Come to Ireland, then spend some time in London, then take the Eurostar over to Paris and spend a week or so. Don’t worry about the job thing yet – first you need to focus on getting a feel for it, I think.”

Tip 3: R. Gerry moved to Dun Laoghaire 9 months ago
“Use a moving company that you trust. This website is very handy for finding a number of international movers. The companies that contacted us were really willing to help sort out what we need to take. The quality of the move was high and all of them offered us extra services which we needed. Nothing was broken during the move so we think it was a really good job.”

Tip 4: N. Fitzgerald moved from New Jersey to Dublin Ireland 13 months ago
“When you hire professional movers, do your research and hire good ones that are bonded or have some kind of insurance. I would rather have no movers at all rather than poor quality ones. “

Tip 5: C Orlan moved from New Jersey to Wicklow 6 months ago
“I would strongly advise you to have a job lined up BEFORE you come here. Google ’employment agency+ Ireland’, and go online. When you get here, go to the local Garda or police station, and ask them how to get registered as a resident. You’ll need to take a birth certificate, and your passport.”


Tips for obtaining your visa for your move to Ireland

Tip 1: T. Farland moved from New Jersey to Limrick 12 months ago “There was a lot of paperwork and research to do for figuring out if I qualified to live in Ireland. I decided to use a professional service that could process my paperwork and help me qualify for my green card. It was worth paying a little extra for it.”

Tip 2:P. Tailman Moved 2 years ago
“Here’s my advice for newcomers. Move into a property here so you have an address and are living here. Once you have an IE address here, you can apply for a ppsn# Once you have the ppsn# you can open a bank account and pass it to the landlord and apply for appropriate permits.”

Tip 3: L. Acron moved from New Jersey to Ireland 8 months ago
Intl movers took care of everything so my move really was really not bad at all. I am happy here in Ireland. I love this country, it is now my home. I strongly advise anyone coming to try and have a job lined up before you arrive. Finding work can sometimes be more difficult than the move itself.
