The CONTINUOUS residence law applies to both Non-EU citizens and Spouse of EU citizen.water_tank1 wrote: ↑Thu Jul 18, 2019 8:36 amAccording to the current citizenship application form 8 and on closer inspection I see differences from Non-EU citizens based on 5 years residence and people applying on the basis of an Irish nation ....
" If you are a non‐EU citizen making a standard application based on having 5 years
Evidence of your residency permissions that cover a CONTINUOUS PERIOD of 365/366
days in the year immediately prior to the date of application (date of Statutory Declaration)" - If applying this way it is asking for the "continuous residence" as per the new court ruling
According to the application form section based on married to an Irish national, it is not asking about the "continuous residence", only asking for residency permission for one year prior to application. So does this mean if applying based on married to an Irish nation is not affected?
Does the new ruling specify which basis the application is on or is it covering all applications?
Surely most if not all applicants who are applying for citizenship have been out of the country for at least one day in the 12 months before applying.
In both section 15 and 15 A (Naturalisation of spouses of Irish citizens), one year Continuos residence is specified, irrespective of what form 8 says only for Non EU citizens
