Applying for Irish citizenship – EU National

Post by Simenon » Sun Apr 18, 2021 9:07 pm

Hello everyone,

"To apply for citizenship by naturalisation based on residence, you must prove that you have been resident in the State for at least 5 years (1825 or 1826 days) out of the last 9 years.
This includes 1 year (365 or 366 days) of continuous residence immediately before the date you apply."

I've been living in Northern Ireland for 3 years and I'm going to move to Dublin soon and stay at least 2 years.

This 5 year-period has to be spent in either Northern Ireland or Republic of Ireland, right??


Thanks!

No. You will need 5 years of residence in the Republic or 3 years if you're married to Irish citizen.

If you are married to an Irish national, you need just a total of 3 years in either the Republic of Ireland or Northern Ireland.

In all other cases (with the exception of being a refugee), you need 5 years in the Republic of Ireland.
