Triumphant Success: ‘I’ve Received My New Visa!’

Greetings, everyone! I’m Maria Santos from the Philippines. I spent nearly 15 years living without documentation here in Ireland. On January 31st, I applied for the Undocumented Scheme, and I’m thrilled to share some fantastic news about my visa and work permit!

On April 1st, I received a positive letter from the Department of Justice, granting me legal status in Ireland. This has brought immense joy, and I’ve already booked my tickets to visit my son and my mum back home.

I want to reach out to anyone living undocumented and tuning in today to convey that applying for this scheme is a secure process if you meet the specified criteria. You must have been living undocumented in Ireland for 4 years or 3 years if you have children. Even if you have a deportation order or any other ongoing application, you can still apply.

I understand the challenges of living undocumented and the fear associated with stepping out of the shadows. I want to assure you that once you meet the criteria, it is indeed safe to apply.

Remember, the scheme closes on July 31st of this year. Don’t miss out on this life-changing opportunity!
