The number of new applications for visas, residence and citizenship the Irish Naturalization and Immigration Service (INIS) received in 2014 are the highest in the country’s history.
This isn’t in any way surprising. It was the year of the quickening, when the Jews made clear their plan to literally bury us alive in piles of chimping chimps.
Provisional figures show that at the end of 2014 there were approximately 95,000 non-European Economic Area (EEA) nationals with permission to remain in the State. This figure stood at 107,000 at the end of 2013.
All non-EEA nationals remaining in the country for longer than 90 days are required to register with An Garda Síochána.
The current top six registered nationalities – which account for over 50% of all people registered – are Brazil (12%), India (11%), China (9%), USA (7%), Nigeria (6%), and the Philippines (5%). The majority of people with permission to remain in the State are here for work or study purposes.
Overall in 2014, approximately 172,000 new applications (i.e. visa, residence, protection and citizenship) were received by the INIS.
Decisions were issued in almost 179,000 cases (a proportion of decisions issued relate to applications submitted in previous years); and 92,000 new or renewed registrations of permission to remain in the State were issued by the Garda National Immigration Bureau.
Provisional figures indicate that approximately 101,500 entry visa applications for both short and long stay visits were received in 2014, an increase of 6% on 2013 and a cumulative increase of 22% since 2011. The approval rate for entry visa applications was 91%. The top 5 nationalities applying for visas in 2014 were India (17%), Russia (14%), China (11%), Nigeria (6%) and Saudi Arabia (5%).
Some 42 new recruits start started working in Immigration Service today as part of civilianisation of border control at Dublin Airport.
Nowhere left to run now, White Man.
So what’s the plan?
