My sister's due date is coming up in a month and a half... applications were paid back in january/feb.... With the news above, I'm tempted to post the paperwork to dublin this week.
Anyone know if the post would reject the mail (from the USA)?
If I was you I would send it, make sure you send it registered so it can be tracked. Also, make sure you mark on the outside of the envelope the application number and pregnancy. It may just be added to a pile or it could be worked on. If you don't send it then your sisters child will not be able to apply for Irish citizenship as she was not registered as an Irish citizen at the time of birth. Make sure there is solid proof of pregnancy so something on headed paper confirming your sister is pregnant and due date.
I agree, I posted about this a few posts ago. Check my posts out. I sent proof of official due date from the hospital / midwife and the case was escalated. I clearly marked pregnancy addition to original application on envelope. Hope you get it turned around on time. The staff in Dublin will do all they can for you. They were great with ours and frequent clear contact.
Yup, your post inspired me to run to the post office! I was afraid that with the FBR office closed, they would reject mail and our documents would be lost to postal purgatory forever... TOTALLY missed the part where it was a PO Box! Mailed on 8 July and package was processed through a Dublin sorting facility yesterday so hoping for delivery today or tomorrow! Did the FBR office contact you first?
few other questions from the very pregnant sister...
- How are things verified? Is it just "oh these are originals/certified true copies and the lineage matches up, so you're good!" OR does FBR have access to US databases to cross check? We submitted her certified passport, cert drivers license, birth cert, marriage cert...but her name change just went through for social security and they will be updating their licenses prior to the birth. (I assume the passport will wait a bit as the US renewal system is currently a hot mess.) To add onto that fun, her and her husband decided to make up an entirely new last name - after the irish pub they had their first date in! Is this something we will have to scramble for the FBR or something she can just deal with come passport...?
- We did a pandemic move recently but still technically own the house my FBR application is tied to.. (pending sale in mid-August and around the block.) How fast do documents post-FBR add normally arrive? Would it be better to just mail the new proofs of address for current house now before they even email me about the application to facilitate better turn-around?
Thanks so much everyone!!!!
