In recent years there has been a major transformation in how Government services are delivered to the Irish public. In the future, the majority of Government information and transactions will be available online. The main Irish Government web portal www.irlgov.ie enables you to access information with a few clicks. This would previously have involved more time-consuming methods (e.g. queuing at local Government office for long periods).
The Reach agency web portal is another Irish Government website and this integrates public services and implements the framework for electronic government. To view this web portal enter the URL: http://www.reach.ie
This particular guide provides an overview of Irish Government public information available online. It focuses on the use of information and sources, using as an example the major ‘LifeStep’ of moving from one country to another. It will be of interest to Irish people looking to relocate abroad or return home, and to those of other nationalities looking to move to Ireland.
