Moving2Ireland.com launches this month to help guide emigrants to the Emerald Isle
Moving2Ireland.com has officially launched as the one-stop shop for resources regarding emigrating to Ireland.
The new online platform offers key resources and information for individuals and families who want to build a successful life in Ireland, whether they are returning home or entirely new to the country.
Launched by Ruairi Spillane, a native of Co Kerry who now lives in Canada, Moving2Ireland.com follows in the footsteps of Spillane’s Moving2Canada.com.
In a press release, Spillane said “Just like many before us, the Moving2Ireland team moved to a new country for adventure and opportunity. We remember the uncertainty and the excitement of the new and unknown.”
“We secured work permits and jobs, discovered neighbourhoods and places to live, and set about securing longer-term immigration status. We understand what it takes to make a successful transition from other countries, and are determined to provide others with the best resources and guidance to make this momentous step easier.”
Spillane noted that in April 2017, some 84,000 moved or returned to Ireland to settle. He added that with Ireland’s expanding economic growth, the trend of Irish emigration should continue.
"Immigration regulations can be complicated,” said Spillane, “so potential newcomers need clear and concise information on eligibility and how the process works. Orientation in a new country after the big move can also be an overwhelming task.
“With the right information and preparation, most people can take charge of the transition on their own terms."
