The party certifying the passport (or drivers license) and the witness to the FBR application are two different things. I know this to be true because my passport copy was certified by a Notary Public in the U.S, and my (successful) application was witnessed by an attorney.PMB123 wrote: ↑Thu Nov 08, 2018 3:58 pmRe Milkybeer:
The Irish DFAT specifies who needs to witness your FBR application, it can be:
Member of the Clergy, Medical Doctor, School Principal, Bank Manager, ,Solicitor/Lawyer/Commissioner for Oaths, Police Officer, Magistrate/Judge
The Post Office won't be any use.
And your mothers passport application will have no bearing on your FBR application.
I am not a UK citizen, but according to this, the post office can certify such documents. So I think you are fine.
As noted, your mother's passport application will not have any bearing on your FBR application, as long as you both supply the requisite original certificates. Since both applications require your mother's birth certificate, you'll need two original certificates (at least if you are submitting the applications at the same time). A photocopy will not do.
