Hi All,
Have seen quite a few posts on the delay in processing for children. Wanted to check if any body has sent the documents for their child in the last few months and received the passports & acknowledgement back?

In my case have send the documents for my daughter in last week of June and have not received the passports/acknowledgement yet. Any suggestions please.
Hi, Wondering if you have received the acknowledgement and the passport back?

You are lucky. Since I applied for my children in early February 2020 and that's over 8 months now and I am yet to receive reference numbers and application fees. I've sent a lot of mails but only getting the copy and paste. Don't know what else to do :roll:

In my mind, the application of minor is processed faster than audlt's. But the fact is exactly the opposite.

Glad that you've received your documents back. I have submitted my kids application along with the original passport on 12th of October and yet to receive the documents back, worst part is I've travel plans to home in December and got tickets booked. I've tried to reach the citizenshipinfo@justice.ie but left with no response. Phone lines are off due to covid as well. Did you only sent the reminder emails to the above address?

Hi all anybody experienced this and what did you do?

Both my siblings were asked to submit a current passport with their application but they have never had a passport before as we never applied for one for them because they never left the country. They were both born in 2006 and 2010. We asked an immigration officer and she said that they shouldn’t need to submit any current passport if they never had a passport before at all and a letter stating this should be enough for the citizenship department along with copy or mothers leave to remain letter stating them as her dependents and their original Irish birth certificates.

Has this happened to any of you and what did you do to resolve it?

Just tell them that they were born in Ireland and have never left the country. Submit a copy of birth certificate (even though you might have submitted them before) and attach the Section 12(4)(b) of Immigration Act 2004, which explicitly allows a non-national who was born in Ireland to be exempt from the ID requirement.

However, why not applying for a passport for them? It's always better to have one just in case they need to travel.

Any update guys? Since they don't reply emails again, I sent them a letter by post reminding them of my children's application number and receipt of statutory application fees we paid since they received application in February. Fingers crossed.
