Stamp 4

Stamp 4 refers to the stamp number, or immigration status, given to an individual with permission to reside in Ireland. It indicates that the person is entitled to work without a work permit. It is issued to people on work visas/work authorisations, and also to, e.g., spouses of Irish and EU citizens, refugees, people with Irish Born Child residency, people with long term residency status. Once a person has been granted Stamp 4 status, they are to report to their local Garda National Immigration Bureau in order to receive a residence card. The residence card shows their Stamp 4 status as well as their photograph and other personal details. The residence card is proof of the person's Stamp 4 status and should be shown to employers when evidence of the person's Stamp 4 status is needed.

EU Directive 2004/38/EC

Family members of EEA nationals exercising Treaty rights in Ireland as per EU Directive 2004/38/EC, who are not themselves EEA nationals, are granted "Stamp 4EUFam" status once permission has been given for them to remain in Ireland in the company of their EEA family member. Such permission is given by the EU Treaty Rights Section of the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service within the Department of Justice, Equality and Law Reform. Stamp 4EUFam differs from standard Stamp 4, only in that Stamp 4EUFam is valid for 5 years, in accordance with EU Directive 2004/38/EC.

Residence Card

Residence Card issued by the Garda National Immigration Bureau in Ireland (Rep. of). This particular Residence Card is for a person with Stamp 4 EUFam status. However, persons with other Stamp status (residence status), would hold a similar card.
