1st Stamp at airport

Post by Moh25ah » Mon Sep 21, 2020 11:09 am

Hi,

I entered Ireland on 22/09/2015 with Visa type "D" (Family renunciation), the officer at the airport stamped my passport from 22/09/2015 to 22/10/2015 to go and register.

After 3 weeks I got my first GNIB - Stamp 4 on 12/10/2015.

Can I know if the period between 22/09/2015 to 12/10/2015 is considered as reckonable residency for citizenship ?

If yes , should I pick Stamp D on the calculator for this period ?

Kind regards

You are not considered to have leave to remain permission until you have registered with GNIB. Your first stamp starts at the date of your registration.

The only case where a person's residency can be traced back to the date of arrival is refugee. It will be specifically spelled out on INIS and Citizen Information website.
A person granted refugee status can apply for citizenship through naturalisation once they have acquired 3 years of reckonable residency. Residency is calculated from the date of arrival in the State.
